Santiago Bose: Painter, Magician
EVENT #: 55247
Bare Necessities is the first installment of the exhibition series dedicated to art theorist and indigenous cultures advocate Santiago Bose titled Santiago Bose: Painter, Magician. It is divided into seven sections which highlight the artist’s wide range of works and proof of extensive practice. This installment zooms in on Bose's language and beliefs as an artist, from abstractions that reflect his stance on colonialism to everyday drawings that show how art is always affected by context. "The artist articulates the Filipino subconscious so that we may be able to show a true picture of ourselves and our world," he once said.
