“The Long Now” by Jem Magbanua and “Earthly Delights” by Cristina Gamón
Galerie Stephanie has two new exhibitions open this month: "The Long Now" by Jem Magbanua and "Earthly Delights" by Cristina Gamón. In “The Long Now,” Magbanua takes off from Google Maps to materialize the relationship between today’s climate of remoteness/isolation and the physicality of space. On the other hand, Gamón’s "Earthly Delights" is her take on the story of creation, inspired by Bosch and using colors of fruits such as rambutan, kalamansi, makopa, durian, and other ‘exotic’ fruits “to paint a window into a vertiginous and otherworldly sea.”
The exhibits run until July 21, 2020. Galerie Stephanie is located at 4th flr, Shangri-La Plaza, EDSA cor. Shaw Blvd., Mandaluyong City. Gallery hours are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For visits after 5 p.m., call 7940-5726 or email [email protected] to book an appointment.

Kwarantin by Junyee
UP Vargas Museum is virtually presenting Junyee’s latest installation Kwarantin. The work is described as constructs of “bamboo beds enclosed in tall, uneven rails and with black marks dispersed across the space. The beds are strewn on the museum lawn to index a state of unrest.”
Kwarantin will premiere virtually on July 16, 6 p.m. via the UP Vargas Museum’s Facebook page. Visit the event page for more details.
