We are pleased to present ‘Together Apart – Art world voices that connect us now’ in partnership with the National Museum of the Philippines.
A spin off of our recently concluded online campaign the exhibition highlights thoughts of art leaders in 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 presentation 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. They 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. This exhibition serves as an archive as well as an extension of the campaign to include more local artworks and voices.
This virtual exhibition will be available to the public until 19 November 2020. For access to viewing for groups or individuals beyond this date, please message Henri Palma at firstname.lastname@example.org.
