Augmented realities and fake news, the politics of relationships, Manila as dystopia. These are some of the themes that will be tackled and presented in ‘To Differ, Digitally; Calls for Change Through New Media’ an exhibit by the College of Saint Benilde’s Center for Campus Art (CCA) in partnership with the New Media Cluster of the School of Design and Arts.
The clamor for change is now played out on the platforms of digital and social media as the tools of every person to differ and speak out. New Media, as this exhibit portrays, are vital means to merge art and design with the independent statements by our educators today.
The production is the first digital exhibit of the CCA and as well, the first one that is headlined exclusively by Benilde faculty, in particular those from the New Media Cluster composed of the Photography, Digital Film, Animation and Multimedia Arts programs.
Molly Tamola Velasco-Wansom, Lea Sacdalan Abarentos, Katrina Santiano Juane, Penny Angeles-Tan, Jomel Gregorio, Rafael Liao, Sharon Mapa, Vanju Alvaira, Hannah Sison, Jesse Ray Lazaro, Mito Tubilleja, Mochie Cuyco, Roy Molon, Pepe Manikan, Don Henry Bañaga Bolo, Volty Garcia, Daniel Enriquez, Yolec Homecillo, Love Asis, Leo Santos, Jag Garcia, and Seymour Sanchez will present their statements and calls for change through the use of contemporary tools and platforms.
Curated by Arch. Gerry Torres, Director of the CCA and Karen Ocampo Flores, Benilde faculty and curator, Philippine Women’s University School of Fine Arts and Design (PWU-SFAD) Studio Gallery.
