Manila (CNN Philippines Life) — Norman Crisologo is living proof that to be an art curator, one doesn’t need a degree in art. Despite the intimidating impression of the art world, he began his career as a self-taught artist guided by his great curiosity about contemporary Philippine art. He slowly made a name for himself as a curator with an eye for art that speaks to other people. “I’m not gonna try to pretend that I’m educated when it comes to art or that I know the theories.

Singapore Biennale 2019 is the biennale of our time

Manila (CNN Philippines Life) — Patrick Flores, the artistic director for Singapore Biennale 2019, insists that this year’s biennale doesn’t have a theme. The title “Every Step in the Right Direction” is an invitation, an inspiration, he says; not a theme. “I believe in certain anxieties and they don't have to become themes. Themes tend to capture, instead of release,” he explains. Flores, along with six other curators, formed the biennale mainly in terms of geography, wanting to focus on Sout

The Filipino photographer in the age of social media

Manila (CNN Philippines Life) — A half-naked man crawls aimlessly across the streets of Manila during the EDSA Revolution. Young boys and girls in hijabs studiously read their Korans in the Bay Area after 9/11. Against a bleak grey sky, a military truck drives along a road in ruins in Marawi City. Roofs have turned into skeletons, vegetation grows amid the concrete wreckage — but the tall spire of a mosque, crowned with a crescent moon, remains. These are the images that first greet you in the
