*17 February 2019 - 26 May 2019*

The Ateneo Art Gallery celebrates the National Arts Month with the launch
of *Domènec. Not Here, Not Anywhere*, a touring exhibition by Catalan
artist, Domènec, organized in partnership with the Museu d'Art Contemporani
de Barcelona (MACBA) and with the assistance of the Embassy of Spain to the

*Domènec. Not Here, Not Anywhere* was first shown in MACBA last April 2018.
Curated by Teresa Grandas, the Manila iteration presents more than ten (10)
works from the MACBA exhibition which offers an overview of Domènec’s
artistic practice since the 1990s. It also includes two new works that he
had developed after his 10-day visit to Manila last July 2018.

In *Not Here, Not Anywhere*, Domènec uses modernist architecture and city
planning as starting points to tease out issues related to the politics of
urban development and its social impact on its stakeholders. Largely based
on anthropological research and narratives from different local contexts,
he makes use of photography, videos, archives, and installations to start a
dialogue on how these projects have failed to address basic social and
human needs.

This exhibition tour to the Philippines is organized by the Ateneo Art
Gallery and Museu D’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, the Embassy of Spain to
the Philippines, Instituto Cervantes de Manila, and Aretè, with support
from Alta Fairs & Exhibit as the official handler, and Weekend Craft Ales.

*Domènec. Not Here, Not Anywhere opens on 17 February 2019, 4 PM* at the
Fredesvinda Almeda Consunji Gallery, Ambeth R Ocampo Gallery, Elizabeth
