Allow me to introduce you to the latest guest/resident curator of The Living Room for September and October, Miss Marlyne Sahakian. Marlyne is pretty much a one-woman curator, technical director, promotions manager, and exhibition space packed into the frame of a world-travelling five foot three inch Armenian-American woman in her late twenties. She comes to Manila with a full agenda and a suitcase full of art. Literally. Marlyne will be working for the next two months as an environmental consultant for SPM International in Smokey Mountain Tondo while putting up a travelling exhibition and art salons at The Living Room. Her current project is called:
