Joseph Gabriel, Issay Rodriguez and Jezzel Wee are among the top graduates of their class from the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts in 2013.

PointB is an exhibit that brings together these three young minds in an attempt to project where they are heading now that it is time to leave the University—from being student artists to becoming artist artists. In real affairs of the arts, it is argued that there is no real distinction that divides a student artist from artist artists. Artists anyway remain students of life forever.

This exhibit then is Gabriel, Rodriguez and Wee’s ceremonial reaction to their equally ceremonial denouement from the University. It is an experience that challenges even the smartest, brightest and most creative to fight the feeling of uncertainty, insecurity and fear. Uncertainty over what? Insecurity towards what? And fear of what? One might ask…of the so-called "Real World".

This is a sentiment as old as time, as those who thought that they have experienced and are surviving the Real World made sure that the myth continues.

The exhibit runs until February 28, 2014.
