Past winners of Metrobank Foundation’s Art MADE Public showcased their latest artwork in the Spectrum exhibition held recently at the Atrium of S Maison.
A joint project of SM, The Metrobank Foundation, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, and the United Architects of the Philippines, the exhibit highlighted new art forms and styles, unique themes, and exceptional works that reflect the journey of the artists.
Featured works included 2019 MADE awardees Jayme Lucas’ “Sugat ng Tahanan,” Christian Maglente’s Untitled work, Cedrick De La Paz’ “15/30,” Dave Alcon’s “Distinct,” and Arman Arago’s “Ang Tanda ng Bata.”
Leeroy New’s “Sigbin with Tree,” Mark Justiniani’s “Hole,” Elmer Borlongan’s “Record Digger,” Alfredo Esquillo’s “Laban ng Loob 2,” Anton Del Castillo’s “In pride the wicked hotly pursue the afflicted,” Raffy Napay’s “I Live Here,” and Mark Andy Garcia’s “Existence” were also included.
SM officials led by senior vice president for marketing Millie Dizon together with S Maison’s mall manager Grace Mindanao warmly welcomed special guests which included Metrobank Foundation president Aniceto Sobrepena, Jr. and his wife Anna, United Architects of the Philippines’ Jun Andres, and Fundacion Sanso’s curator Ricky Francisco.
In his message, Metrobank Foundation president Chito Sobrepeña said, “through this Spectrum exhibition, we challenge and inspire the Filipino youth through actual examples of millennials and masters who made breakthroughs in their creative crafts.”
The recent show was in line with Art MADE Public’s aim to spread awareness of Philippine art and heritage through a series of exhibits, lectures, and workshops facilitated by renowned Filipino artists, as well as architectural and heritage practitioners in select venues nationwide.
Art MADE Public 2020 will be at SM Angono in Rizal on March 19-25 and at SM Lanang Premier in Davao on April 3-10.
