The Cultural Center of the Philippines presents its first venue grant exhibit for the year, “Places” by Alfred Marasigan. The exhibition will be on view from March 10 to April 10, 2016 at the CCP’s Bulwagang Fernando Amorsolo (Small Gallery) and 4th floor Atrium (Manila side).

“Places” is Alfred Marasigan’s attempt at sharing personal moments of introspection. For the artist, external spaces, particularly ‘non-places,’ have a profound effect on contemplative individuals like him. Because of these spaces’ lack of character / distinction / significance, the subjective mind is able to transform them into places through art. It is Marasigan’s hope that his works will encourage people to reimagine the spaces they inhabit into places they can eventually value.

Those passing through Roxas Boulevard for the duration of the exhibition will also be able to view the artist’s outdoor installation entitled “Flight,” which will be suspended from the roof of the CCP’s façade.

Everyone is invited to the exhibit’s opening reception on March 10, 2016, Thursday, 5:00 pm., at the Bulwagang Fernando Amorsolo (Small Gallery), 4th floor CCP Main Theater Building. Alfred Marasigan will also be presenting a special artist’s talk on March 17, 2016, 5:00 pm., at the CCP’s front lawn.

Gallery viewing hours are from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
