Cosico at Museo Pambata

MARC Cosico’s exhibit Lamon is on view until Oct. 31 at Museo Pambata’s Children in the Global Village.

Lamon is a collection of works that reflect on the artist’s experiences as a child, adolescent, young adult and, now, as a father. Cosico identified icons and images that represent the foreign influences in our culture, the cultural practices and the local counterinitiatives that formed a complex layer of our identity/ies as a person and as a people.

The exhibit is copresented by Philippine High School for the Arts and UP Los Baños.

Museo Pambata is along Roxas Boulevard corner South Drive, Manila. E-mail [email protected]

SCULPTURE by Alab Pagarigan
SCULPTURE by Alab Pagarigan

PINTO Art Museum presents In Between, sculptor Alab Pagarigan’s first solo show. It runs Oct. 18-Nov. 11.

The exhibit is the artist’s lyrical interpretation of those moments of existential choice or “the point(s) in human lives before they make a decision; the space between crossroads.”

Featured are a number of installed indoor sculptures of wire and resin casts, whose intricate and seeming fragile construction makes for a statement on the precariousness of his subject and the delicate attention to his theme.

Pinto is at 1 Sierra Madre St., Grand Heights, Antipolo City, Rizal. Call 6971015 or e-mail [email protected]
