Semester's over and it's time to feed my artsy (nux!) side!

First on the list is this underrated museum of College of St. Benilde, Museum of Contemporary Arts and Design. They're currently exhibiting The Vexed Contemporary which comes from Marian Roces's essay, Luna and Hidalgo: Vexed Modernity. This exhibition is contrary to Roces's vexation, though, it portrays the 'distressed definition of contemporary'.

The museum is white and clean, and the staff are kind and helpful beyond words. Each one of them would go and offer you help and would encourage you to ask questions and would try to enlighten you with what they know, they're also in full smile and simply delightful!

My favorite piece in this exhibition is Leslie de Chavez's "Apog," (see photo) which is a huge word search puzzle made of lime and soil containing names of those who died during the Mendiola and Hacienda Luisita massacres. You can't actually cross out the names on the artwork but they provide a piece of paper (with the exact word search puzzle) and pencils so you could try and answer.

I liked Kiri Dalena's "Erase Slogans," (a collection of photographs of protests and rallies in the 60s to 70s) too and another artwork by Leslie de Chavez, the "When the Medium Killed the Message" (a machine embroidery on canvas with the famous lines from some of our national heroes).

There are whole lot more art pieces which I'm sure you guys would enjoy knowing and seeing. This museum is worth your visit, art junkie or not, you may find this exhibition and the art pieces interesting. I thing it'll be there until November! And the best deal? It's free!
