Altro Mondo Arte Contemporanea’s annual group exhibit “Rondo II” features the works of twenty-seven Filipino contemporary artists. In describing “Rondo II”, Gwen Bautista writes:
“In classical music, Rondo consists of refrains, which are alternated with episodes. The refrains remain the same throughout the course of a movement but the episodes may contrast tonally and thematically. Altro Mondo’s current group show shares the same ground with the musical form and strives to present an assemblage of works that depict refrains in the form of portraits, landscapes, realism, social realism, and the like while alternating with episodes in the form of abstraction, surrealism, and the progressive.”
Remegio David, an art collector and the man behind Altro Mondo, explains how “Rondo II” is “an assembly of established and emerging Filipino contemporary artists that aim to look at the present art preferences and gauge a little bit of the past and some of the future. It’s not as much, a retrospective. Rather, it’s a dialogue among the artists despite their pictorial differences, personal preferences, and aesthetic persuasions. It’s the ethos running in them and although difficult to explain–it’s simply coming together and revealing Altro Mondo’s je ne sais quoi.”
This year’s group exhibit will feature the works of Andres Barrioquinto, Jonathan Benitez, Herwin Buccat, Ross Capili, Ernest Concepcion, J Consunji, Jayson Cortez, Gerecho Iniel Cruz, Antipas Delotavo, Norman Dreo, Roberto Feleo, Romulo Galiciano, Allain Hablo, Mia Herbosa, Niccolo Jose, Winner Jumalon, Rico Lascano, Art Lozano, Othoniel Neri, Justin Nuyda, Jim Orencio, Nile Pobadora, Issay Rodriguez, Jo Tanierla, Nestor Vinluan, Betsy Westendorp, and Orley Ypon.
