Oh! Please come visit the Metropolitan Museum for the exhibit of my friends! I’m really so proud of you, guys! This exhibit reminds me to explore the city more despite the hassles (sorry, but you share this with me, I should know) of urban life here in the Philippines. Not to be confused with though, I love Manila (and Pasay for that matter.) There are just some things that are really hard to love, despite you know, your passion for your city or country.
Ok I digress. RSVP here :)
“One Day in the City: Pasay” is a photographic exhibit focusing on Pasay City. The show depicts facets of the urban fabric and the experience of city dwellers as seen thru the eyes of student photographers from the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde AB Photography program. The photography project is a way of showing how life is in one part of a 21st century Asian megalopolis like Metro Manila, and will provide a counterpoint and a response to the Spanish photography show “Photo By Photo: A Portrait of Spain” recently exhibited at the Met.
The exhibit features the works of the following photographers:
Ralph Acasio, Joey Alvero, Jay Man Bravo, Joyce Co, Inna Cristobal, Joy Cruz, Inno Delarmente III, Louise Anne Manuel, Jesed Moreno, Artu Nepomuceno, Justin Reyes, Cai Soriano, Remington Tiu, Apple Marie Villalobos and Arrianne Yonzon.
The exhibit also features works of Spanish photographer Txema Salvans made during his recent Manila visit.
“One Day in the City: Pasay” runs up to March 31, 2012 at the Tall Galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Manila. The show is organized by the Metropolitan Museum of Manila, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde School of Design and Arts, The City Government of Pasay, Canon Marketing Philippines Inc. and the Spanish Embassy- Manila.
This serves as your invitation for the show opening on Thursday, January 26, 2012, 6pm at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila.
