Press Release

The world today is something totally new, as a negative zeitgeist now predominates. Moving forward through each day it feels that we are walking further and further backward. Progress is a dirty word, truth is  just a fairy tale, and confusion is a policy. Whether one is contemplating culture and politics in the U.S., the Philippines, or almost anywhere else in the world, things seem more dark and less secure. The artists in this exhibition all embrace a certain darkness, whether in a humorous, linguistic or literal sense.

Welcome to 2017.
