Sensorium of Portraits @ Metropolitan Museum Of Manila

"Sensorium of Portraits"
Metropolitan Museum Of Manila
February 16, 2007 to July 26, 2007

The SENSORIUM is the part of the brain that is concerned with the reception and interpretation of sensory stimuli, and is thus regarded as the seat of the mind.

It is also the title of the first of the interactive exhibit-stations that the Metropolitan Museum of Manila will open to the public.

The Sensorium of Portraits features the works of contemporary artist Allison Wong-David, who just held her successful first one-woman show that drew inspiration from how everyone and everything are essentially linked together. This interconnection is sustained at the Sensorium of Portraits since along with new, unseen works by the artist, it also features select pieces from the said one-woman show that have been loaned to the Metropolitan Museum. However, this interconnection is made more dynamic and expansive at the Sensorium of Portraits since it takes on the role of being a substantiation of the Metropolitan Museum’s thrust of Art for All - making art educational, enjoyable, and accessible to all kinds of audiences.

At the Sensorium of Portraits, the audiences are allowed, and in fact encouraged, to touch all the artworks, which come in a variety of materials, techniques, and expressions. Some artworks have indentions and nodules that persons familiar with Braille could decipher. Some artworks also have audio components such as sound and voice recordings. The Metropolitan Museum will also offer Chocolate Wednesdays, wherein the audience can eat the artist’s edible portrait entitled Chocolate Myrna. Traditional didactic and bilingual wall texts are also provided in the exhibit.

The Sensorium of Portraits and other future interactive stations to be launched at the Metropolitan Museum are in service to the museum visitors, especially the children, whose experience of art and the museum is acknowledged to be more memorable and educational if they are encouraged to release their energies and involve their other senses, apart from just looking.

Sensorium of Portraits is currently on view at the Metropolitan Museum Of Manila.
