Seventeen artists will be taking inspiration from the music of rapper Curtismith in the upcoming Pinto Art Museum show called Museo. The collaborative art and music exhibit is a project of the young music artist and the esteemed Antipolo art haven, together with Pool Records who will produce the music.
The event promises to be a unique sonic experience, fusing two disciplines together: fine art and music. The inspiration will come from Curtismith’s latest album Museo which, according to Pinto, depicts his journey as a Filipino living in a time of contradiction while at the same time questioning his identity.
The participating visual artists include Candice Arellano, Argie Bandoy, Anna Bautista, Ranelle Dial, Sandra Fabie-Gfeller, Dex Fernandez, Auggie Fontanilla, Romeo Lee, Ferdie Montemayor, Bea Nazareno, Jono Pisano, King Puentespina, Pogs Samson, Duane Villanueva, Reg Yuson, Jeona Zulueta, and Cris Villanueva Jr. who is also the show’s curator.
According to Pinto Art Museum, the show will be “making parallels between music and art,” particularly in how one experiences both. “In the hopes of transcending boundaries, Curtismith and Pintô Art Museum aspire to show visitors that experiencing music goes beyond merely acoustics. Museo is an accumulation of multiple senses, visual and sonic facets coming together to connect creatives amidst the pandemic.”
Museo will be open to the public from July 11 to 25. It will be at Auditorium, Pinto Academy, Pintô Art Museum, 1 Sierra Madre Street, Grand Heights Subdivision, Antipolo.
