TOPAZ ARTS proudly presents “Bastards of Misrepresentation: New York Edition”, curated by internationally renowned artist Manuel Ocampo, featuring 20 leading artists from Manila’s thriving arts scene, with contemporary works from painting and installation to video and performance. Bringing the scene to NYC, a series of exhibitions will take place from October 27 to December 30, 2012, presented by TOPAZ ARTS, Inc. at locations across Queens & Manhattan — Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, Crossing Art, Queens Museum of Art/Partnership Gallery, Tyler Rollins Fine Art and TOPAZ ARTS.

“Bastards of Misrepresentation” is a show about the cultural scene happening in the Philippines yet is not a definitive show about Philippine art. The 20 artists included represent the “now” of contemporary art in Manila whose works entice and challenge perceptions. Many of the artists have been recognized by the country’s most prestigious awards from the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Artist Awards and the Ateneo Art Awards, and are establishing reputations in Europe, Australia, and Asia, while locally others are highly visible as performers in the underground art, performance and music scene. TOPAZ ARTS received an Asian Cultural Council award enabling three of the artists from Manila —Yason Banal, Lena Cobangbang and Maria Jeona Zoleta — to participate as Artists-in-Residence, creating new works, site-specific installations and performances.
