Kalayaan | The Center for Art, New Ventures and Sustainable Development

Kalayaan
13 June – 30 June 2012
GF Lobby and West Wing Gallery

The Looking for Juan Outdoor Banner Project is an annual project of The Center for Art, New Ventures and Sustainable Development (www.CANVAS.ph) that explores the connection of art and social issues. Now on its fourth year, The Looking for Juan Outdoor Banner Project gathers over 70 Filipino visual artists around the theme “Kalayaan.”

Dozens of virtual artists, both budding and established, were invited to contribute works on the theme. For the first time ever, the group show is joined by two Cambodian artists, Mao So Viet and Phin Sophorn.

Original works are to be displayed in the Vargas Museum on campus, while reproductions on tarpaulin banners line the Academic Oval in the University of the Philippines-Diliman.

This year’s event was made possible in part by the generous support of Sun Cellular.
