NAMAMAHAY

We're thrilled to announce BAP's inaugural curator in residence Dayang Yraola, who will organize a 12-day flash residency with nine media artists from Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand.

Namamahay//Home(ing) conveys a process of trying to adjust to a transient space or a new home. Viewing it from a positive perspective, it signals that one is in a new situation, a new beginning, where new possibilities may arise.

From July 24 to August 4, the artists will hold residency at Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar and create site-specific installations, workshops or communal activities that explore the potential of producing works in new or unfamiliar surroundings. Come see and participate in their the fruits of their labor on August 3 and 4!!
