“The Given Order” is a visual exploration of the different tangents of faith and tradition

Religion has been and still is an all-encompassing influence in the lives of Filipinos. Religion being an agent of social order and transformation is looked into by Fr. Dy, who uses art in conjunction with the spiritual life of communities he is connected with. Meanwhile, del Castillo’s works engage with the anxieties and violence in the perception and experience of the individual and collective faith.

“The Given Order” will also foreground pieces from the LML’s permanent collection including sketches and paintings by Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo, Ang Kiukok, Angelito Antonio, Jose Joya, and Galo Ocampo. This exhibit is curated by Ricky Francisco.

Remembering Quijano de Manila

What Do I Say to a Giant” is a nod to the indelible mark Nick Joaquin left in Philippine Journalism.

The exhibition is curated by Thea Garing.
