An exhibition inspired by the Swedish concept “death cleaning”

Döstädning, death cleaning in Swedish, pertains to the process of cleaning house before one passes away. The show plays on this notion as artists create new forms based on given artworks, images, and materials— gathered and kept throughout almost forty years of artistic practice— from the house of artist Ling Quisumbing Ramilo. Death Cleaners will feature 22 artists: Bea Acala, Katrina Andrews, Pope Bacay, Julia Barrameda, Mars Bugaoan, Pin Calacal, Marionne Contreras, Rocelie Deflin, Gale Encarnacion, Carzen Esprela, Ayka Go, ND Harn, Kitty Kaburo, Jessica De Leon, Efren Madlangsakay, Fara Manuel, Isha Naguat, Henrielle Pagkaliwangan, Miguel Puyat, Jel Suarez, Nicole Tee, and Noelle Varela.
