ART FOR ALL
We want our visitors to have fun and to learn.
We exhibit the arts of today. This means shows on design, architecture, city planning, computers, even sports! This means shows of paintings!
We take care of artworks. We also care about new ideas and how things work (or don't work!) We want people to think about their lives.
How do you want to work, play and relate to others?
How can the arts help make a better world?
We have many great things to see and do! Join us!

It also celebrates the 34th anniversary of the establishment of Philippine-China Diplomatic Relations.

Tall Galleries, June 23 - Septermbr 15
"Come-in" investigates the connections between art and design in twenty-five artistic positions by means of individual objects, sculptures, installations and videos. The mobilia, objects, and interiors appear to possess an "obvious" identity as "furniture," "luminaries" or "interiors." On second look however, they are too uncomfortable, colorful and eccentric,
all too clearly geared to our perception or a situational communicative event.
Made possible by Goethe-Institut Manila, National Commission for Culture and the Arts, and Germany's Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations.
Galeriya Bangko Sentral, July 1-December 31, 2009
Sigla at Sikap celebrates the enterprising spirit of the Filipino people and the auxiliary values that this requires: persistence, resilience, innovation, honesty, enthusiasm, and most importantly industry.

Sigla at Sikap, a tribute to the Filipino micro-entrepreneur, is also an invitation to participate in the revolution that will transform Filipino society.
Presented in partnerhsip with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.
