About UnBound: An Australian Philippine Exchange
The Australian Embassy in Manila and Yuchengco Museum present UnBound, an exhibit showcasing recent artistic exchange between Australia and the Philippines through the works of six Filipino and Australian artists who have made both countries their home. Put together by Australian curator Gina Fairley, the exhibit explores how culture moves beyond cartographic or physical boundaries.
Using the metaphor of an airport's transit lounge as the point of intersection for arriving and departing--for ideas of home and away--this contemporary exhibit evokes the frequency with which these artists move across the Asia Pacific. Fairley has selected a group of six artists who live between and across the Philippines and Australia, and have been instrumental in taking the work of Filipino artists abroad.
The featured artists are Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan (Born Philippines, Live Brisbane), Maria Cruz (Born Philippines, Lives Sydney & Berlin), David Griggs (Born Melbourne, Lives Manila), Diokno Pasilan (Born Philippines, Lives Melbourne), Juni Salvador (Born Philippines, Lives Sydney), and Tony Twigg (Born Brisbane, Lives and works Sydney & Manila). 37 of their artworks will be on exhibit, from mediums such as painting, video, and sculpture and with pieces dating back to as early as 1995.
