Laro at the Shrine

Laro (Game) a visual art show on the evolution of our identity as Filipinos, opens at the audio-visual room of the Emilio Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite, on February 7, 2010, Sunday. The show opens at 3 PM with FAMAS President and Kawit Tourism Officer Chit A. Sambile as guest of honor.

Viewers of Laro are bound to be intrigued by art works that weave into a cohesive thought the experiences of generations of Pinoys. In never ending transitions, these experiences that have affected us in myriad ways are like games where people get the chance to either triumph or remain hopeful for the next turn. As we go through them, the expectations keep running.

Artists Nimfa Ursabia, Rex Domogma, Victor Ursabia, Byron Salarza, Sir Soni Chavez, Cristina Ramirez, Alain Austria and this author relate those transitions in mixed media assemblages and collages reflecting footnotes on history and visual reminders of our glorious past and the dream as a Nation.

Made possible through the generosity of the National Historical Institute and Cafe Marcello,  Laro runs until March 6, 2010.

For particulars, those interested may call the Aguinaldo Shrine via (046) 484-7643 or text/call 09279077749/09195919748.
