the outpost

The Bellas Artes Outpost was opened in the Alley at Karravin in 2017 to create a satellite location in the heart of Manila to engage urban audiences with the art activities happening in Bataan. This non-collecting, non-selling exhibition space welcomes the public to engage with art, architecture, and design through its programming and its reading room and salon, which hosts publications from all over the world. 

The Outpost aims to increase discourse between Filipino artists and audiences with the international contemporary art community. It produces four exhibitions a year and a public program that draws inspiration from the context and activities of Bellas Artes Projects in Bataan and connect audiences with the artistic processes used by the exhibiting artists.

Bellas Artes Projects was founded by Jam Acuzar and derives its primary patronage from the Acuzar family and New San Jose Builders. Artistic Director Diana Campbell Betancourt leads the foundation’s programming. Claude Mark Wilson from WeDesign designed the space.
