 Yao at Archivo, Critical Platforms at Vargas

ARTIST-PHOTOGRAPHER Jay Yao presents his latest works in the exhibit “Funopticon,” opening Sept. 29, at Archivo 1984 Gallery.

He explores the role of technology and its democratization in the creation of art, producing what seems like the most traditional of works through the most unconventional of methods.

Show runs until Oct. 22.

Archivo 1984 Gallery, 2/F, Warehouse 1, 2135 Chino Roces Ave., Makati City. Visit facebook.com/ARCHIVO1984.

“Lucid Dreamings,” a solo exhibition of recent works by Roger “Rishab” Tibon, opens Oct. 6, at Art Elements Asian Gallery.

Rishab opens up the world of imagination, breaking boundaries of realism, and delivering the exhilaration of joy and fantasy in dreamscapes of vivid colors and phantasmagorical forms.

Art Elements is at SM Aura Premier, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Call 5199683.

“Modern Baroque,” an exhibit featuring recent abstractions by Bien Benitez, opens Sept. 27 at Renaissance Gallery.

Benitez takes as inspiration the time in history when the galleons plied the Manila-Acapulco route, leading the Spanish colony into the global village, in a bustling trade between the splendor of gold and silver and oriental ceramics, spices and opulent fabrics. It was in the late 16th century, too, when the European Baroque was interpreted by Filipino and Chinese craftsmen.

Renaissance Gallery, 4/F, The Artwalk, Bldg. A, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City. Call 6373101.
