A collaboration of Alliance Française de Manille, Qube Gallery and Eskinita Art Farm, in celebration of National Arts Month and 10 Days Before Art Fair PH

VERNISSAGE: Tuesday, February 6, 6:30PM, at the AFM Gallery.

"Cross Currents" presents artists from Luzon and the Visayas, highlighting the diverse artistic heritage of these regions and offers a captivating visual narrative that traces the evolution of contemporary art in the Philippines, deeply rooted in cultural history. It showcases Filipino artists' unique journey, merging Western art movements like classical realism, abstract expressionism, and low-brow street art with local themes and indigenous motifs. The fusion creates a distinctive visual language that asserts a strong national identity while remaining globally relevant. The exhibition is a celebration of the innovative ways Philippine artists have integrated Western artistic influences, showcasing their ability to create a dynamic, unique artistic identity.

Having had a successful exhibition at AFM in 2023, Qube Gallery returns this time with Eskinita Art Farm for "Cross Currents”, inviting viewers to explore the complexities of cultural exchange and artistic evolution, emphasizing the significant impact of such fusion in the art world.
