On November 8, I attended the opening of the Conectados exhibit at the Ayala Museum. Conectados is a multimedia projected participated by 29 artist from 3 different countries: Philippines, Spain and Mexico. The museum was packed with the excited crowd of this different type of exhibit.
What is different is that it is not because it’s multi-media and collaboration of 3 different countries, the exhibit will be in public view via video projection of exhibition photographs at five primary locations in the Makati Central Business District: Ayala Museum, Glorietta 5, Greenbelt Fashion Walk, The Link, and Tower One and Exchange Plaza arch. That’s different!
You can of course still visit Ayala Museum to see the actual photographs and also see the photographs being project inside the museum.
Below is the press release for more details about the exhibition.
