Local Museum Presents On-Site Exhibit On Climate Change


Local Museum Presents On-Site Exhibit On Climate Change

How do you feel about this story?


Adaptation: A Reconnected Earth, the first on-site exhibition for 2023 of the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (MCAD) Manila of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, opens on Tuesday, March 28.

The show proposes an approach of determining the present within the realities of a changed climate, a despairing planet and a recently renewed humanity.

Climate agencies have warned that the global temperature rise this century should be kept well below two degrees Celsius to save the planet. The exhibition will feature artists who speak on the realities of the disrupted climate and the daily lives amid the anxious shift between the allure of capitalism and responsible conservation.

“We must approach re-entering the planet, of peopling the world, through the modality of care and kinship,” noted MCAD Director and Curator Joselina “Yeyey” Cruz. “This proposal of having a thoughtful, kind and considerate outlook is the consciousness we should strive for in order to survive the present and future of our own making.”

Adaptation: A Reconnected Earth features a diverse collection of artworks, from C-prints and papier-mâché works to video installations. They will come from artists Patty Chang, Deniz Tortum and Kathryn Hamilton, Josh Kline, Agnes Denes, Lui Medina, Bartolina Xixa, Issay Rodriguez and Derek Tumala.

The exhibition is free and open to the public beginning Wednesday, March 29, 2023 until Sunday, July 23, 2023. Booking in advance is required via its website.

MCAD is located at the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde Design + Arts Campus, Dominga Street, Malate, Manila.
