The Ateneo Art Gallery is now hosting works from *Ekphrasis: Poetry
Inspired by Art*, a thesis project by BFA Art Management student Clarisse
Infante, in collaboration with the students of Pugad Ateneo of the Ateneo
Junior High School (AJHS).

*Ekphrasis: Poetry Inspired by Art *is a series of workshops participated
in by the AJHS Pugad members aged 12-16, which focused on learning how to
write about art creatively. In the culminating activity, participants were
asked to write a poetry or prose about one artwork that inspired them the
most from the *Love It and Leave It *exhibition.

Check out their works in the first floor of the Ateneo Art Gallery or join
us on March 29, Friday, at 9:30AM for the folio launch which will include a
walkthrough and poetry reading by the students of Pugad themselves. To
RSVP, please visit bit.ly/EkphrasisRSVP

*17 February 2019 - 26 May 2019*

*Domènec. Not Here, Not Anywhere* was first shown in MACBA Museu D’Art
Contemporani de Barcelona 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 MACBA Museu D’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, the Embassy of
Spain in 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* runs until 26 May 2019 at the Fredesvinda
Almeda Consunji Gallery, Ambeth R Ocampo Gallery, Elizabeth Gokongwei
Gallery, and Alicia P Lorenzo Gallery located at the third floor of the

Domènec, *Real Estate, *2006-07, Wood, offset printing on paper, and 4

*LOCUS AMOENUSRyan Villamael*

*Locus Amoenus* or “pleasant place” is an installation composed of finely
cut latticework from replicas of geographical maps which resemble foliage
and fronds. Its first iteration was in 2016 at the Singapore Art Museum for
the Singapore Biennale. A recent version is currently on view at the MAIIAM
Contemporary Art Museum in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Ryan Villamael was a 2015
Ateneo Art Awards – Fernando Zóbel Prizes for Visual Art winner and the
recipient of La Trobe University and Liverpool Hope University residency

*Locus Amoenus*, Villamael's return show, is on view at the staircase of
the Ateneo Art Gallery.
*A Legacy of Gifts to The Ateneo Art Gallery*

This exhibition features the gallery’s permanent collection at the Mr & Mrs
Chung Te Gallery, Mr & Mrs Ching Tan Gallery, and Ernesto and Susan
Tanmantiong Gallery. Expect to see new artworks on display as the
gallery switches some of its pieces to highlight more donors who
contributed to the expansion of the collection since 1960.

*Love It and Leave It: A Legacy of Gifts to the Ateneo Art Gallery* runs
until 16 June 2019.
