Celebrating the diverse and vibrant art of the Philippines
The contemporary art of the Philippines reflects current experience while also drawing on the country’s rich artistic history, encompassing ancestral traditions, links to the arts of India and China, and modern ties to Spain and Mexico.
In considering complex relationships between individuals and the community, Passion and procession presents installations, videos, sculptures and paintings revealing personal experiences of life and faith, and their public declaration in processions.
This exhibition is part of the Bayanihan Philippine Art Project, a collaboration between the Art Gallery of NSW, Blacktown Arts Centre, Campbelltown Arts Centre, Mosman Art Gallery, Peacock Gallery (Auburn), and Museums and Galleries NSW, to celebrate the art and culture of the Philippines through a series of exhibitions, performances, creative writing and community programs across multiple venues.
