10 Cool Finds From the Omnibus Art Pop-Up at Artelano 11
It runs until March 11.
(SPOT.ph) Stepping into the charming 2680 F.B. Harrison compound in Pasay would make you doubt that you're actually in the right venue for a contemporary art event. The post-war neighborhood, after all, features rows of houses with large windows and balconies from a bygone era, and a fountain that seems to be from the time of the ilustrados. But the reality behind the gates, which has now been transformed into an art hub with a boutique hotel and a number of galleries and showrooms, is the reason why it's the perfect spot for Omnibus—an art pop-up that runs until March 11 at Artelano 11.
Omnibus' interesting and modern appeal beautifully coincides with the Old World vibe of the place. The event showcases experimentation in the arts—be it a theme, genre, or medium. "Omnibus" is a Latin word for "for all," which is fitting for the variety of artists and works included in the roster.
Here are some of the finds that immediately caught our eye during the opening on March 8:
Patched button-front (P5,000) from Randolf
