Wild Imagination: The Grotesque Illustrated

May 21 to July 24, 2004

Curated by Joselina Cruz

The exhibition included works from the collection and from practicing contemporary artists in Manila. In the forefront were notions of imagination as a tool to focus on the excesses of life and the transgressions of “bodies” in history (e.g. the tortured body of Christ). While the grotesque may carry negative connotations, it nonetheless allows us to visualize otherness with a more accepting view.
