ALTRO MONDO is pleased to present HABAGATAN, the first exhibition by The Vismin Art Collective. The show opens on Thursday, July 5, from 6:00 - 10:00 PM at the gallery, located on the 3rd Level of Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City.
In “Habagatan” (“from the south”), Altro Mondo serves as an avenue for regional art and cross-cultural exchange. Thirteen artists from the Visayas and Mindanao gather in this exhibition to seek common ground: to offer diversity. Here, the artists transcend geographical boundaries while paying homage to their roots.
The Vismin Art Collective consists of finalists, awardees, and winners of the recent Philippine Art Awards. The group came together as a result of the competition, spawning a collective thrust to promote art and fellow artists from their home turf. Together, the works in “Habagatan” stand not just as a sampling of what lies south of the center: they also serve as vessels for the artist’s identity and individual art practice set against his cultural milieu.
