Re­cent T&C cover sub­ject Elmer Bor­lon­gan marked a ca­reer mile­stone with “An Ex­tra­or­di­nary Eye for the Or­di­nary” at the Metropoli­tan Mu­seum of Manila. Cu­rated by his­to­rian and aca­demic Am­beth Ocampo, the ex­hibit fea­tured more than 200 of Bor­lon­gan’s works from 1979 through 2015. Bor­lon­gan mounted his first solo ex­hi­bi­tion at Bos­ton Gallery in 1993 and re­ceived the CCP Thir­teen Artists Award in 1994. The land­mark show chron­i­cled Bor­lon­gan’s evo­lu­tion as an artist, from his years un­der the tute­lage of artist and teacher Fer­nando Sena, to his time with the Sal­ing­pusa group, and his move to idyl­lic Zam­bales with his wife, fel­low artist Plet Boli­pata.
