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.

During their residencies in Bataan, Begum, Rahman, and Sultana collaborated with the artisans at Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar to create abstract expressions of their emotional engagement with the physical landscape of the Philippines, often by experimenting with found industrial and building materials. The title draws inspiration from the idea of reading forms found in architecture and creating new languages for living in the hybridity of the 21st Century.



Did you know that in addition to exhibitions we hosts a series of educational programs at BAP Outpost that are all free open to the public? This includes art talks, children’s workshops, film screenings and more!
