The Philippines, Archipelago of Exhange, Quai Branly, Paris

The exhibition brings together a selection of unique works of art from the Philippines, chosen from public collections in the Philippines, America and Europe as well as from private collections.

The Philippines archipelago includes more than 7000 islands and stretches over nearly 1700 km. The geographical and historical situation of its people has generated strong and varied artistic expression in the natural environment of the monsoon regions of Asia.

Based on the geography of the archipelago are two visions, one turned towards the mountains, the other looking out to sea, which set the tone of this exhibition of a civilisation underpinned by the central theme of exchange. Exchange is understood as an object which is given and received, intent on seeing, and presupposing a relationship to the other. Whether symbolic or commercial, exchange creates relationships between visible or invisible beings.

This exhibition, containing more than 300 works, is the first major exhibition in France in the last twenty years devoted to the archipelago of the Philippine.
