IGGY RODRIGUEZ: HANGGANAN
(Main Gallery)

14 November- 5 December 2013

Manila Contemporary is proud to present the gallery’s first major solo show by Iggy Rodriguez. "Hangganan" expands upon the artist’s continuing concerns around poverty through large-scale pen and ink drawings, paintings and sintra board assemblage. The result is a surreal and searing critique on the dynamics of class and social injustices that affect Filipinos today.

JOHN JAVELLANA: HOME COURT
(Upstairs Gallery)

14 November- 5 December 2013

Manila Contemporary is proud to present John Javellana’s first ever solo exhibition "Home Court". As a respected photojournalist, Javellana has covered numerous Philippine based political events and natural disasters for news outlets all over the world. However, for his first exhibition, he turns his documentary focus on one of, if not the most beloved sports in the Philippines: basketball. "Home Court" goes into the heartlands of the country from the mountains of Sagada to the rebel camps of Mindanao, from the rural to the urban, to present an intimate photo essay of people and place. Frame worked around the obscure, unlikely and everyday places where basketball courts are located, Javellana’s reveals the unique qualities of the Filipino spirit through a passion for sport.
