This exhibit marks the foray of these fourteen young artists into the formal gallery system. It is also the first time for a gallery to host an exhibit for Manila’s underground fashion and music scene.
The exhibition will kick off with a party with bands BEE EYES, Pedicab and Taken By Cars, and DJs Gigee, Chie Castaneda and The Diegos – an opening night unlike any other among Manila’s established galleries.
Participating artists, all handpicked by Kiko Escora, include Sharon Atillo, Shahani Gania, Raena Avella, Otto Terapen (RETARDO), Nixon Marquez, Merryloo, Marvin Tojos, Leah Castaneda, Julius Valledor (BEE EYES), Jujin Samonte, Chris Yniguez, Chi Kotur, Cameron Clark and CHI CHI (BLACK BOOK DESIGN/KST).
