STORIES FROM THE RIVER

September 5, 2018 @ 8:00 am - September 30, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Zachary Alcoseba gives new life to the lowly driftwood in “Stories From the River,” his first one-man exhibition at the National Commission for Culture and the Arts Gallery in Intramuros, Manila.

As he transforms wooden debris into functional forms and works of art, Alcoseba also pays homage to the Subanon or Subanen, the riverine people of Mindanao, particularly in Usugan in the town of Bonifacio, Misamis Occidental. His creative process involves magkono wood and the Subanon indigenous community in his home province in Northern Mindanao.

Through this exhibit, the artist hopes to increase the public’s awareness on environmental concerns such as deforestation and the plight of our endangered species; promote environmental sustainability through recycling; and encourage local alternative income-generating activities through skills, artistic development, and capacity-building.

The exhibit opens at the NCCA Gallery, 633 General Luna St., Intramuros Manila on
September 5,  2018  and will be on view until the 30 th of September 2018. For details
