Pitik-Bulag: A Multimedia Art Exhibit



Selected multimedia arts students from Asia Pacific College will hold an art exhibition entitled “Pitik-Bulag” on April 18 – 22, 2015 in Image Factory Studios, 3rd Floor, Zeta Building, 191 Salcedo St., Legazpi Village, Makati City.

Pitik-Bulag is a multimedia art exhibition in light of the loss of sight. It aims to give life to different forms of artworks inspired by the impairment of vision. This project seeks to help and understand the community of visually-impaired. The exhibition tries to immerse the audience in the realm where sightless individuals go around, and look at what blind people can see – their dreams, their world, which is not just limited to the darkness. It also attempts to visualize the impairment of vision in everyday living of those who are able to see – for there is blindness even with those with good visual acuity.

Inspired by blindness in all of its sense, Pitik-Bulag is a community-based art exhibition. The exhibit is inspired by a community of blinds. The Resources for the Blind, Incorporated is the beneficiary of the art exhibit. Opening night will be on April 18, 2015, 7PM. The exhibit will run until April 22, 2015. There will be an artist talk on April 20, 2015 from 9AM to 5PM – a discourse with the exhibition artists, curator’s talk, talks with other guest artists, and success stories of selected visually impaired invitees. There will be workshops on motion graphics, makeup, and photography on April 21, 2015 from 9AM to 5PM. Selected films will be screened on April 22, 2015.

Collectively known as Kwadro, this pool of multidisciplinary arts students is composed of Marc Brimon, Jom Masolabe, Alecx Abueg, Ysa Deveza, Kenneth Tesalona, Clarence Patangan, JC Azul, Kyle Garcia, John Rodolf Ambrosio, Ricardo Garcia, Shannon Go, Justin Calimlim, Chrishelaine Quilatan, Mitos Garinga, Rachelle Villar, Erika Zapatos, Mary Ann Picardal, Green Morales, Ericka Gemal, Kristine Paz, Christine Salinas, Shirleine Pepito, Joshua Rei Macapagal, Viennard Concepcion, and Karl Hans.
