Painter Manuel Ocampo, known for capturing pop sub-cultures on his canvasses, curates the show, saying that “in this millennium, we are faced with cataclysmic decline of the environment and societies, and artists have dealt or anticipated this world on the verge of collapse”. Witness Filipino humor mirror its foreign and dystopian counterparts.

Brave New Worlds will feature a variety of contemporary artworks showing parallelisms of practice among artists who struggle to make sense of a society facing moral, ideological, and environmental degradation.
