Bellas Artes Outpost
Prelude | Carlos Amorales
Opening of Bellas Artes Projects' non-profit Manila exhibition space, Bellas Artes Outpost, with a solo exhibition by Mexico City based artist Carlos Amorales (b.1970).
The title Prelude alludes to a future act ahead and speaks to the role of sound that echoes across the artist’s diverse practice.
For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Amorales’ family settled in Acapulco via the Spanish galleon route, and their long journey across the Ocean connected them to the Philippines in the Batan Islands. Personal history aside, there are deep connections between the Philippines and Mexico (and further on in Latin America), with nearly 60,000 crew members sailing back and forth across the Pacific Ocean, some permanently settling in Mexico over the course of two-and-a-half centuries from 1565 to 1815. Similarities in folk music in Latin America and the Philippines are one of the ways that this connection of cultures can be acutely experienced. Music and sound surpass language in their ability to connect people; experimenting with instruments gives people a common place to jam.
Amorales will be representing Mexico at the 57th Venice Biennale to open on May 2017. We are excited to host him for a residency in Bataan.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION, 'PRELUDE':
Visitors will be enchanted by a score that Amorales and musician Julian Léde commissioned from the legendary Guatemalan composer and sound artist Joaquín Orellana (b. 1937), which is Orellana’s unique take on a segment from the classic Disney Film Fantasia. . The short film “Orellana’s Fantasia” from 2013 registers the shadows of a performance by Orellana, who built a set of instruments that are analogue models made to perform as if they where electronic instruments, called útiles sonoros (sound utensils).
Each instrument has to be performed by following a score written out of a set of symbols and notations that Orellana invented to do so. Carlos Amorales and musician Julian Léde commissioned him in 2012 to create his own version of the score for a segment of the classic animation film “Fantasia” by Walt Disney, which we hear in this video. Following the experience collaborating with Orellana, the 2013 Amorales film “Sorcerer’s Apprentice” required the artist to work frame by frame from the original animation of Walt Disney.
Each frame has been extracted and reproduced several times through a black and white photocopy machine, diluting the original image. Later, each photocopy was manually torn in two pieces, before being digitalized again and reordered through a post-production process. Continuing with the ideas of building abstract scores and the liberation found through the immediacy of the photocopy process, Prelude presents a new series of prints by Amorales that bend notions of what sound could and should look like.

Optimism is Ridiculous: The Altarpieces - Natee Utarit
Ayala Museum and Richard Koh Fine Art with the support of the Royal Thai Embassy in Manila cordially invite you to Natee Utarit’s highly anticipated exhibition entitled Optimism is Ridiculous: The Altarpieces at Ayala Museum, Makati Avenue, corner de la Rosa Street, Makati City, Philippines 1224 from 17 February - 9 April 2017. The exhibition will feature 12 large-sized oil on canvas paintings. The opening reception will be held on the 17th of February, from 6 – 9 pm.
Natee Utarit (b. 1970, Bangkok) studied at the College of Fine Art in 1987 and graduated in Graphic Arts at the Painting and Sculpture Faculty at Silpakorn University, both in Bangkok, Thailand in 1991. His work is part of many renowned collections, such the Bangkok University, Bangkok, Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, Singapore Art Museum, Singapore, as well as private collections in Europe and Asia. Utarit’s multifaceted practice focuses on the exploration of the medium of painting connecting it with photography and classical Western art. Light and perspective are some of the elements the artist chose to work with, focusing on painting as a means to explore image making. His complex pictures, juggle wide-ranging metaphors usually in the format of the traditional still life, allude to Thailand’s current social and political landscapes.
Lopez Museum and Library
Pauses of Possibility
Observing the visual arts through an intimate vantage point, the Lopez Museum and Library ushers in its 2017 exhibition calendar with Pauses of Possibility. The upcoming exhibition presents pieces birthed out of personal narratives, amplified, and translated into large-scale works and tangible sculptural pieces. Marina Cruz, Kara de Dios, Elaine Navas and Pam Yan Santos create works of introspection and memory.
Pauses of Possibility amplifies the moments of quiet and introspection, the artist creating her work, the viewer posed in front of the painting. The exhibition attempts to prolong this silence suspended in time forcing the viewer to delay judgement, and to resist the demand of instant gratification that comes from understanding the work in its entirety. In the current reactive state of the world, the temptation of amplifying our public selves overpowers the gravity of introspection. Perhaps now more than ever, the practice of reflective quiet becomes a duty.

Drinking Knowledge: The Endless Summer
When Life hands you lemons on a mercurially hot day, what you DON’T do is throw them at whomever gave them to you (hint: Life). The smart money would be on petrissaging them with high-quality hooch (Don Papa rum), and misting them down with a 60/40 mix of Victorian class and aromatic sass (elderflower).
The result? A refreshing and enlivening concoction with just the right amount of zing, tang, and “ahhh”, like a cool, zesty lemonade in the shade. It’s sure to put you right in an El Nido postcard––your feet in the water, your unflexed tush in some powder-soft sand, an ice cold drink sweating in your gentle grip, while the setting sun ignites the sky in a fiery spectrum.
Yup, it tastes 99.96% like that.
