Joining the flourishing creative scene of the metro, Modeka Creative Space opens its doors this Saturday, December 14th at Warehouse 20A La Fuerza 1, 2241 Don Chino Roces Avenue, Makati City.

Modeka, an independent, artist-led contemporary art gallery and art consultancy, is dedicated to providing a new and innovative platform for the most exciting local and international artists to showcase their work. It offers a diverse and eclectic mix of painting, sculpture, mixed media, limited edition prints, and photography to provide experiential and multi-sensory exhibitions featuring internationally-acclaimed and emerging artists.

Aside from its art exhibitions, Modeka will hold community programs to promote cultural and creative activities, as well as unique art experiences within and outside its four walls, with the intent of making art accessible to the widest possible audience.

Modeka also provides art curation services for brands and institutions, connecting them to a wide-ranging and culturally relevant selection of local and international artists, creating engagement through fresh and exciting art-infused experiences.

Modeka’s first exhibition “Nothing Gold Can Stay”

Modeka opens with its first exhibition titled “Nothing Gold Can Stay” which will run until 31 January 2020. The group show aims to tackle the idea of impermanence and it evaluates how art-making can become more involved in the active and conscious experience of the present.

The exhibition gathers artists from here and abroad whose practices explore a spectrum of forms, themes, and materiality. This includes Filipino photographer Mark Nicdao, modern and contemporary painters Lynyrd Paras and Jono Pisano, and 13 Lucky Monkeys.

The show will also present works by Indonesian artists Sinta Tantra, Dedy Sufriadi and Ronald Apriyan, and Caryn Koh of Malaysia.

Sinta Tantra, a London-based artist of Indonesian descent, is highly regarded for her public artworks including a 300-meter painted bridge commissioned for the 2012 Olympics in London. She usually merges art and architecture with patterns and color that mirror her Balinese heritage.

Dedy Sufriadi, on the other hand, creates representational imagery using a variety of media on canvas that gives his works a jagged and multi-dimensional effect. While Ronald Apriyan presents colorful artworks with easily recognizable images from pop culture rendered in his unique style.

Sufriadi and Apriyan are also headlining the first edition of Modeka’s In Conversation series on December 18. The artists will have an open dialogue to share their views about their style, their trajectory into the art scene and their vision for contemporary art in today’s world. Both artists will also do an open studio for everyone to witness how their pieces unfold into beautiful works of art.

The opening night of the exhibition also featured performances by Jason Soong, Marie Garcia, Brando Umali, Krista Roma, Tribo Manila.
