It's not an event in Manila and no pun intended either, but:

MANILA ENVELOPE opens Tuesday, September 26, in the Worth Ryder Gallery on the campus of University of California - Berkeley. This exhbition of thirteen Metro Manila-based artists was organized by former The Living Room artist-in-residence, Jennifer Wofford. Whose brand new and rocking website is now up and running here.

MANILA ENVELOPE features Yason Banal, Louie Cordero, Poi Beltran, Carlos Celdran, Denis Lagdameo, Norberto Roldan, MM Yu, Lena Cobanbang, Jayson Oliveria, Bembol De La Cruz, Gerry Tan, Poklong Anading, and Gary-Ross Pastrana.

In addition to MANILA ENVELOPE, her 2nd year cohorts in Berkeley's MFA Art Practice Department is presenting DIRTY LIGHT, an exhibition of their work in low light, in Worth Ryder's main space. DIRTY LIGHT features works by Joe McKay, Bill Jenkins, Kara Hearn, Lindsay Benedict, Ali Dadgar and Alicia McCarthy.

Please come to both shows if you live anywhere near there.
