Musical Chairs, a political satire A one-man show by Dennis Ascalon

Artist Dennis francis Ascalon artistically documents the recent National Election through his new show, Musical Chairs, a political satire. The show is the artist’s own commentaries and opinions regarding the socio-political condition in the country and how its twists and turns actually makes it ridiculous.

The show mirrors the existing political condition in the country. His works revolve around the playing field and the courses the government takes before, during and after the electoral process, thus, discussing its biases, double dealings and deceitful facades.

 The exhibit runs from 4 June to 24 June 2010 at NOVA Gallery, Warehouse 12A,

La Fuerza Compound, 2241 Don Chino Roces Ave., Makati City. For more information

EXHIBITION CONCEPT
“Articulating Structures and Medium”
A Group Exhibition
This exhibition is about interchanging views of each other’s latest artistic output concerning
“New Art” using the different kinds of medium outside of the tradition. We would like to show
each of our interpretations on the structural aspect of the visual art with the use of the mixed
media aspect, photography, light, volume, conceptual in installation art and even in performance.
There might also be music to go with the whole ambience

Artists Junyee, Joe Bautista, Pandy Aviado, Red Mansueto and the Syjuco family
presents a multitude of art forms in their upcoming show “Articulating Structures and Medium”.
Included in the show are artworks ranging from wall-bound paintings, three-dimensional
installations, sculptures, videos, mixed media, and performances. These works, diverse they may
seem, works hand in hand in presenting new grounds, thus becoming significant portions of the
entire show in truly articulating structure and medium.
The exhibit runs from 15 April to 6 May 2011 at NOVA Gallery, Warehouse 12A, La
Fuerza Compound, 2241 Don Chino Roces Ave., Makati City.

Chris Villanueva – The Right or What’s Left of it

his right hand and taps into his brain’s left hemisphere in producing new works for his upcoming
show “The Right Or What’s Left Of It.” This collection features the metamorphosis of the artist
as he produces an action-reaction to the left and right dynamics.
The exhibit runs from 1 October to 29 October 2010 at NOVA Gallery, Warehouse 12A,
La Fuerza Compound, 2241 Don Chino Roces Ave., Makati City.

Artist Cris Villanueva blurs the boundaries of the hand and the brain’s left and right schematics in his coming show “The Right Or What’s Left Of It”. A painter utilizing his left hand for almost four decades now, Villanueva, for this show, decided to use his right hand along with the left to neither stand against nor adhere to norms, but to infiltrate, explore the irony and diversity of both states.
The exhibit runs from 1 October to 29 October 2010 at NOVA Gallery, Warehouse 12A, La Fuerza Compound, 2241 Don Chino Roces Ave., Makati City. For more information call 392-7797 or send an electronic mail to
