Prepare to see the city with fresh eyes and heart in the exhibit “Mga Liham Pag-Ibig sa Lungsod/Love Letters to the City.”

Featured artists include Jowee Aguinaldo, Candice Arellano, Jonas Arlegui, RC Caringal, Rap Carloto, Kendall Colindon, Sarah Conanan, Art De Leon, Eugene Dominguez, Joseph Fraylon, Kim Gaceja, Gamalinda, Siefred Guilaran, and Mark Hernandez.

Simbulan, Brave Singh, Jerline Sunga, and Franz Marion Vocalan.

Curated by Carlomar Arcangel Daoana and co-presented by JFRII Studio, the show offers a symphony of odes to our shared metropolitan experience, inviting viewers to rediscover the beauty woven into the fabric of the everyday.
