The exhibition gathers a selection of unique works of art from the Philippines, chosen from public collections in the Philippines, America and Europe as well as from private collections.
About the exhibition
The Philippine archipelago includes more than 7000 islands and stretches over nearly 1700 km. The geographical and historical situation of its people has generated strong and varied forms of artistic expression in the natural environment of the monsoon regions of Asia.
Two visions exist, fashioned by the geography of the archipelago: one is turned towards the mountains, the other looks out to the sea. This double vision sets the tone for this exhibition, which focuses on a civilisation underpinned by the notion of exchange. Exchange is understood as an object which is given and received, which is meant to be seen and presupposes a relationship with the other. Whether symbolic or commercial, exchange creates relationships between visible or invisible beings. This exhibition, containing more than 300 works, is the first major exhibition in France in the last twenty years devoted to the archipelago of the Philippines.
