Salvatus works and lives between Manila and Osaka. “He travels between different media – from installations to photography, from video to ephemeral sculptures.” In this exhibition, he examines back and forward to continue Salvage Projects back in 2006.

The exhibition will run from January 13 to February 10, 2018. 1335 Mabini invites us to the opening on January 1 at 6 PM.

Participating artists respond to exhibit curator Tony Godfrey’s question: “Is the best art simple or complex? Do you believe in the possibility of perfection or is it all determined by chance?”

Godfrey is an international teacher, curator, and writer who used to ran Sotheby’s Institute London’s MA Contemporary Art program and now based in the Philippines.


Counterfeit Monochromes runs until January 14, 2018 at MO_Space X, curated by Carina Evangelista.

Poster from


The exhibition is comprised of contemporary works by artists who riffle on minimalism. “[…] Turning the hard edge of minimalism against itself, these artists posit what might be unresolved questions, vague indictments, or expressions of love”.

According to New York Southeast Asia Network, Evangelista has been an art professional for more than 25 years.  She is currently an editor at Artifex Press in New York and has spent years at MoMA for curatorial work.

Gratifying enough? Take more time to support Filipino contemporary artists in their future shows. Stay tuned for more eavesdropping of exhibitions you may check from time to time!
