This December, Manila Contemporary marks its third anniversary with 12 Days of Xmas, an exhibition of nostalgic reminiscing and joyful welcoming inspired by the popular English Christmas carol of the same name. Pondering on the meaning of this joyful event, thirteen artists with diverse specialties grace the space with an assortment of pieces.
Christmas is a season of bright lights, colorful decorations, door to door carols, family gatherings and gift giving. It is usually associated with moments of warmth and togetherness. Manila Contemporary carries this forward and challenges the norm as we offer an alternate version of this familiar festivity. Providing no boundaries in medium or theme, artists are made to explore the endless possibilities of their craft and are left to create according to their own sentiments for the occasion. Linked by a common thread of merriment and as a toast to the past, we prepare for another chapter of endless possibilities.
