July 9. It was the closing reception of INVERTED TELESCOPE at the CCP 4th floor galleries. Miss Angel Shaw, the curator of the said exhibit, was present to thank all the guests and patrons. It was a simple ceremony. Beer and videoke were of course present with a DJ spinning some records.
Original works by Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan, Ringo Bunoan, Gaston Damag, Kawayan de Guia, Mark Justiniani, Arvin Nogueras, Manuel Ocampo (a.k.a. Jesusa Malamuerte), and Walang Kikilos (Poklong Anading, MM Yu, Neo Maestro, John Jayvee del Rosario and Rico Entico) were displayed at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Different original artworks were on exhibit too at The Drawing Room, Makati.
As what INVERTED TELESCOPE means, Ms. Angel Shaw said it was inspired by transnationalist experiences of Filipino artists who left their homelands to either study, visit, or live in western countries and were inspired and/or influenced by these cultures, art practices and mindsets.
