It’s your last chance to see pointillism and nature combined at ArtistSpace’s Harmony, the 10th solo exhibition of Korean visual artist Su Bok Kim. The artist’s love for trees is at the heart of this exhibition. She paints not only the forests she has seen and felt but also compares relationships of humans with nature. Admission is free.

For more information, please call or e-mail Jane Salvador at (02) 759-8288 or artistspace@ayalamuseum.org, or Su Bok Kim at sbsbkim@naver.com.

Bangka Exhibit

When: Until July 20, 5 p.m.

Where: Globe Art Gallery at The Globe Tower, 32nd corner 7th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig

Swiss diplomat-turned-artist Jürg Casserini’s fascination with broken parts of a bangka, or native fishing boats, that washed ashore has given birth to Bangka, his latest open-to-the-public exhibition. Despite being framed as gallery pieces, his allegiance to the material conditions of these found objects are part of Casserini’s desire to tell a story of vessels lost to time, turbulence, and the natural disasters regularly experienced when one is at the mercy of open waters.
