Featuring 'Invasion of Ona' from the Museum collection and the works of Ernest Concepcion.

Ernest Concepcion's highly illustrative body of works draw from the visual narratives of comics, sci-fi, and fantasy genres, as well as the broader speculative worlds born out of geek culture, which often spotlight conflicting forces in intense, heightened conditions, and our personal and existential relationship with the unknown. Geek-culture media and artforms, which spiked alongside the development of technology, continue to expand in our increasingly digital world, yet they remain overlooked in discourses about contemporary art. On the 28th, join us for an exciting conversation with the artist Ernest ConcepcionProf. Daki Fernando (UP College of Fine Arts), and Mr. Carl Javier (CEO of PumaPodcast and Lecturer at the Ateneo Fine Arts Department).
