5 Stories @ Mag:net Gallery Paseo

5 Stories
Mag:net Paseo
University of the Philippines (UP)
Artists' Circle (AC) Alumni Foundation
April 11, 2007 to April 21, 2007

Mag:net Paseo and the University of the Philippines (UP) Artists' Circle (AC) Alumni Foundation present 5 STORIES, featuring five artists from the UP AC alumni in celebration of its 35th year of existence.

5 Stories is a collaborative exhibition, bringing together for the first time works from alumni members of different backgrounds. Representing five discrete artistic fields are Bong Brillante (Graphic Design), Pete Jimenez (Sculpture), Pablo Biglang-Awa (Video/Film), Mark Gary (Photography) and Arnold Limjoco (Painting).

The works exhibited by five individual artists represent the diversity of disciplines where the UP AC alumni and members have distinguished themselves, and the various narratives of artistic production that the individual members have engaged in.

The exhibit attests to the multi-media capacities of the collaborating artists. Pete Jimenez, for instance, is an award-winning TV commercial animation director and graphics designer yet has successfully produced an arsenal of large to small-scale sculptures from scrap metal since early 2000. Another of the featured artists, Pablo Biglang-Awa - one of the first computer graphics artists in the country - deftly combines commercial directing, painting, and film-making. His debut full-length film, Inang Yaya, recently made a clean sweep of the Young Critics Circle Awards for nearly all categories, including Best Film of the Year and Best Cinematography and Visual Design.

In 5 Stories, the fusion of these different elements hope to bring on a synergy previously unseen, to articulate various modes of visual expression that may serve as a starting point for more fresh narratives and collaborations.

5 Stories is also a tribute to the achievements of the UP AC alumnus, whose names do ring a bell among the ranks of those in the arts scene; achievers in advertising; writers; filmmakers; musicians; dreamers. The show, thus, is a gathering or homecoming where - each individual has a story to tell, about their struggles as up-and-comers, the climb to gain recognition, the joys and pains of being an artist, where members, friends and supporters of AC congregate into - one living, breathing moment - where art becomes the catalyst for connection.

5 Stories @ Mag:net Gallery Paseo runs from April 11, 2007 to April 21, 2007.
