The title of the exhibition is a  reference to Aurelio Tolentino’s ‘seditious’ KNB play staged in Manila on 1903 and the influence of Arte Povera of the 60s. The show aims to establish a convergence of the art of resistance & the aesthetics of poverty; using a contemporary mode of artistic expression – social installation. This collaborative installation project enjoins the PWU visual arts community, – i.e. students, faculty and alumni. With PWU’s long tradition as a locus of culture, heritage & the arts, the exhibition’s proponents engages in a visual discourse articulating on the socio-political condition of the country; alluding to significant contemporary issues that  employs art & culture as powerful agencies for change.

The current Arts Manager of the SFAD JCB Gallery and the university’s Center for Visual Printmaking (CVP), Mr. Noel Soler Cuizon is the guest curator and Ms. Karen Flores is the writer of the exhibition. The exhibit will run until July 13, 2019
