Elmer Borlongan’s landmark exhibit, “An Extraordinary Eye for the Ordinary”; CH Carolina Herrera arrives in Manila; Gianna Montinola and Vicky RotorHilado launch their second book; and more.
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.
