The Manila’Bang Show: Art Fest International 2021 accents works by diverse contemporary artists based in local and international localities. Exhibitions in this fair look into divergent ways, possibilities, or courses of action relating to the visceral, mundane, creative, and artistic processes and production. Central to the idea of the fest is ‘the animate proof of life’, a phrase lifted from Linda Pastan’s 2011 literary collection ‘Traveling Light’ which untangles the transitory qualities of the mundane, with everything being temporary and characterized by ephemerality suggestive of growth, aging, and loss. Through the exhibitions and expanded programming on contemporary art and culture, the fest explicates the animate proof of life.
The title of the fest is lifted from Big Bang Alabang, a distinct fair of entertainment and commercial activities in the 1980s along Alabang Zapote Road and Madrigal Avenue, where Molito Center currently stands.
