“IRAYA: Beyond Limits” a group exhibition by the RAHMAG Visual Arts Group from Antque is exhibited from October 05 – 31, 2021 at the NCCA Gallery.

This October, in celebration of Museums and Galleries Month and National Indigenous Peoples Month, Antique-based RAHMAG group of artists mounts “IRAYA: Beyond Limits.”

The exhibition is the group’s attempt to present what the province has been and what it is now — the union of the traditional and contemporary Antique, and finding its cultural relevance amid the province’s urbanization and modernization programs.

Participating artists are Rey Aurelio, Ramon “Monet” De Los Santos, Jr., Christine Marie Delgado, Raz Laude, Morris Alfred Lavega, Bryan Liao, Kwesi Pearl Faith Magdato, Cezar Gregorio “Saru” Ramales, Jr., Ramuel Vego, Evan “Tibong” Veñegas, and Marienell Veñegas.

In the setting of a modern-day pandemic, this group of artists has become an essential and integral part not only of art-making in their region but also of its cultural heritage preservation.

It is the hope of the RAHMAG artists that “Iraya: Beyond Limits” be seen as a statement of resilience through cultural evolution.

“IRAYA: Beyond Limits” opens on October 5, 2021 at the NCCA Gallery, 633 General Luna Street, Intramuros, Manila. Exhibition runs until October 31, 2021. Call 8257 2205 or email [email protected] for more details.
