Jose Rizal - Through A Looking Glass

Featuring works by Zeus Bascon, Francis Commeyne, Fernan Escora, Francisco Guerrero, Jacob Lindo, Lee Paje, Don Salubayba, Carina Santos, Luis Santos, Erik Sausa, Shireen Seno, Louie Talents and Clairelynn Uy.

This May, a month before it officially ends, Manila Contemporary attempts to reconstruct this tower by introducing our national hero on more relevant and relatable grounds, as a human being. Without discrediting his achievements, this exhibition intends to create a more rounded perspective of Rizal.

Digging through layers upon layers of myth, artists are challenged to depict his nakedness as man. Taking into consideration his insecurities, fears and inclinations, we dive into the raw complexity of his person. To have overcome and used these aspects of his humanity for the greater good, only further intensifies the significant prominence that he has attained.

n the Upstairs Gallery, The Center for Art, New Ventures & Sustainable Development ( will be exhibiting RIZALPABETO, a unique collaboration between poet Vim Nadera and artist Elmer Borlongan celebrating the life and legacy of Philippine National Hero Jose Rizal.

And as supplement to the show, Manila Contemporary will be hosting a talk by Michael Charleston “Xaoi” Chua of the De la Salle University and the Order of the Knights of Rizal, Sucesos Chapter on his essay “THE FIRST EMO: Simple Life Lessons from The Extraordinary Story of José Rizal” on the 9th of June 2012.
