Together Apart | virtual exhibition connecting the Philippines and UK
The British Council and National Museum of the Philippines are pleased to present, Together Apart — Art world voices that connect us now. The exhibition highlights thoughts of art world leaders from the Philippines, UK and other parts of the world at the beginning of the global crisis in early 2020. Responding through artworks from the British Council Collection, their reactions are deeply personal and serve as a reminder of the transformative power of art.
Co curated by the National Museum of the Philippines, the exhibition also allows a global audience to discover select pieces from the National Fine Arts Collection. The artworks bridge circumstances from the time they were created to today’s context. For the art leaders, the works evoke familiar feelings and perspectives presented through the exhibition themes, from anxiety to the need for solidarity.
Together Apart — Art world voices that connect us now started as an online campaign through Platform, a new avenue for cultural engagement, which ran in early 2020. This exhibition serves as an archive as well as an extension of the campaign.
This virtual exhibition will be available to the public until 19 November 2020.
