Considerata: A Meeting of Science and Art at Alliance Française De Manille Until March 30
Inspired by a poem, artists come together every year to express their unique insights and emotions in a collection called Considerata.
See for yourself the poetry of science as told through art from today until March 30, 2019, at the Alliance Française de Manille (AFM) Gallery, Makati City.
A woman of science, Maria Isabel Garcia has written the poem series Considerata I to VII. She is currently the Curator of Mind Museum and Managing Director of the Bonifacio Art Foundation.

Through science, Garcia’s poems call attention to our place in the universe, as well as the unlimited potential of humankind. Read the latest of the series, Considerata VII, the inspiration for this year’s exhibit.
TIME by Fitz Herrera for the lines “If you’re going to stop time, remember that it can stop itself. Redirect your stardust energy to living it fully instead” from Considerata VII
From March 1 to 30 at the AFM Gallery in Bel-Air, Makati, stand on the bridge where science locks eyes with art at the Considerata exhibit. See the communion of science and art as it wakes us to find our true significance in the still on-going cycle of Creation.
Considerata is an annual poem by Maria Isabel Garcia, a science writer.
The Considerata exhibit brings together artists and designers tasked to interpret their reactions. Their art represents a visual interpretation or commentary on particular verses of Garcia’s words.

The exhibit is open to the public for free to see all 17 artworks from painting, sculpture, photography, and new media. They convey Garcia’s message as something meaningful today, when the noise of technology has derailed us from finding the authenticity of our inner selves.
Artists include Assemblage 1, Mark Bautista, Ninel Constantino, Benjie Cabangis, Cesar Caballero, Fitz Herrera, Chachu Lascano, Rico Lascano, Lenore Lim, Dan Matutina, Abe Orobia, Paul Quiano, Jay Ragma, Cid Reyes, Mitzi Reyes, Eghai Roxas, and Tof Zapanta.
