Tuklas 2021: The Nominees
EVENT #: 70245
Eskinita, as an artist-run initiative, continues the TUKLAS Discovery Program with 17 new nominees. TUKLAS is a year-long mentorship program with Eskinita Art Gallery’s founder and director Alfredo Esquillo, as well as the gallery’s resident curator Renato Habulan. The program includes mentoring sessions, art residency, assistance in production, and an invitation for a solo exhibit at Eskinita Art Farm in Tanauan, Batangas.
The artists nominated for TUKLAS 2021 are Abril Dominic Valdemorro, Alvin John Sales, Alyssa Kyra Munar, Argee Dacuyan, Beatriz Airah Dy Yu, Franklin Sison, Ianna Engaño, Jayme Lucas, Joebert Gayoma, Joen Sudlon, Jolo Senense, Jonas Camposagrado, Kimberly Mamaril, Kinoo Padlan, Ricky Natividad, Steven Natal & Zoren Romero.
These 17 aspiring TUKLAS mentees would be given a chance to discover their own potential, test their commitment to art and their craft as well as build their character during the whole program. TUKLAS on the part of the mentors and Eskinita Art Farm would be a time for discovery too—of the art scene’s breadth and depth of potential talent, of prevalent and emerging styles, and of the art scene’s drive and direction.
