Nikki Luna’s solo exhibition This is how to be a woman of the world opens just three days prior to the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25. This International Day aims to raise awareness on violence against women and girls. And Nikki Luna’s work deals with the systematic violence perpetrated against women and girls, in the Philippines and beyond. The title of the exhibition is a direct quote from Duterte, the current president of the Philippines.

Alliance Française de Manille, in partnership with Centre Intermondes, and 1335 Mabini Gallery, present Afterworld Obliteration, a solo art exhibition by Philippine Artist Residency Program 2017 winner, Dexter Sy.
Over the years, Dexter has shaped his own style, combining Persian rugs, painting and ink and pen drawings. In France, he created works evoking the violence and terrorism that can hit both France and the Philippines. There are cut-outs in the form of robots representing evil, robots being perceived in Asia as destructive beings. The drawn parts represent hell and the victims of violence and terrorism intertwined with graphics from the tradition of Indigenous Filipino groups. The use of the Persian rug echoes the significant presence of the Muslim community in the Philippines (more than 20% of the population). The works also make use of Christian symbolism; Christianity is the majority religion in the Philippines.
The exhibition opens on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 6:30 pm, and will run until February 23, 2019. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
AsianArt:Future, Hong Kong and 1335MABINI is pleased to present an exhibition juxtaposing Philippine 20th century abstract art and Cordillera (Ifugao) traditional art, with a view to allow you to gain your own experience. It is not about searching for traces of Cordillera art in the abstract art. It is about presenting the aesthetic vocabulary, using the same principles, in different times, from a quite different cultural background. Click here to read the full introductory text.
