Pagtitipon 2022 – A Gathering showcases original works by Canadian Filipino artists in a Vancouver exhibit from August 9 to August 14.
The show will be held at the Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre (181 Roundhouse Mews).
Pagtitipon features Danvic Briones, Paulina Constancia, Tessie Dichupa, Charlie Frenal, Kiana Hipolito, Edgardo Lantin, Lenore RS Lim, Chito Maravilla, Esmie Gayo McLaren, and Broderick Wong.
A media release related that as restrictions began to lift after two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Filipino Music and Art Foundation in B.C. (FMAAFBC) asked local artists to reflect on activities that sustained them through the physical and mental challenges during the health lockdowns.
“In conversation with the artists, Pagtitipon 2022 reflects on the challenges of interruption, alienation, and hope during the pandemic,” the release explains.
“Through different mediums, the exhibit illuminates the struggle of each artist in a world that is constantly adjusting to a new normal.”
Pagtitipon 2022 is presented in cooperation with the Philippine Consulate General in Vancouver, Global Pinoy Diaspora Canada, and National Pilipino Canadian Cultural Centre (NPC3).
