10 Art Exhibits to See This November

Home is where the art is.

 

(SPOT.ph) “Home is where the heart is” is an age-old adage that confirms man’s need to belong and the importance of finding comfort beyond material and physical things. This search is explored in this month's lineup of exhibits—from coming home to an art-filled community to paying tribute to the different houses that one has lived in.

 

Check out this list for a different look at physical spaces.

 

 

Homebound

Angono, Rizal, dubbed as the Arts Capital of the Philippines, was the birthplace of National Artists Carlos "Botong" Francisco and Lucio San Pedro. It has also produced families of painters, sculptors, and muralists. In Homebound, the next generation of Angono's artists gives us a comprehensive survey of recent developments in its homegrown contemporary art. Included in the lineup are Michael Blanco (son of Jose V. Blanco and resident curator of the Blanco Family Museum), Carlos "Totong" Francisco II (grandson of Botong), Franz Marion Vocalan (one of the protégées of Perdigon N. Vocalan), Wire Tuazon, and many more.
