A mythical utopia isolated from the outside world—the fictional Shangri-La promised to keep its inhabitants in a state of eternal suspended harmony.

This January, the modern and contemporary art gallery Galerie Stephanie celebrates its 10th anniversary as well as its move to a brand new location with a group exhibition exploring the idea of “Utopia,” opening on Jan. 27 at the new Galerie Stephanie at Shangri-La Plaza East Wing.


Since its inception as a modern and fine art gallery in 2007, Galerie Stephanie has undergone a transformation that paralleled the evolution of the Philippines’ burgeoning art scene. Where once the gallery was known for exhibiting well-established local artists, it has now begun to expand its horizons with resounding success.

In “Utopia,” Filipino artists Emman Acasio, Lawrence Cervantes, Iya Consorio, Kara De Dios, Vincent De Pio, Anton Del Castillo, Farley Del Rosario, Sarah Geneblazo, Rommel Joson, Aileen Lanuza, Lyndon Maglalang, Carlo Ongchangco, Reybert Ramos, Juan Sajid, Camille Ver, Rom Villaseran, and Allison Wong-David are joined by international artists Roby Dwi Antono (Indonesia), Noor Bahjat (Syria), Cristina Gamon (Spain) and Nunzio Paci (Italy). –CONTRIBUTED
