Isang Gabi ng Maririkit na Guhit para kay Susan Fernandez

The Landing Gallery
3/F, UP Vargas Museum

Leading names in Philippine art banded together for a fundraising exhibit project titled Laging Nagmamahal, Isang Gabi ng Maririkit na Guhit para kay Susan Fernandez. The exhibit will run from 12 August to 09 September 2008 at the Landing Gallery of the UP Jorge B. Vargas Museum in support of Ms. Susan Fernandez.

One of the pioneers in the Filipino alternative music, Susan Fernandez is known for songs with socially-relevant themes. Her voice, dulcet but full of conviction, can be heard in the original Metropop award-winning song and feminist anthem, Babae Ka. She has represented the Philippines in various international arts and music festivals and has been acknowledged as having championed the cause of Filipino culture and music. She has recently been stricken with cancer, thus, her artist-friends gathered to help her way back to health.
