Catch the Gold in Our Veins Exhibit at the Ayala Museum until May 26!
Inspired by the ancient histories of the East Indies, Indochina, and the Philippines – Gold in Our Veins is a changing exhibit of the museum that reimagines antiquity in a series of portraits by Mark Lewis Lim Higgins. The exhibit opened last February 22, 2019, but you can still catch it until May 26, 2019, at the Ayala Museum, Makati City.
Apart from the works of Mark Lewis Lim Higgins, the exhibit also features objects from the Ayala Museum’s collection that Higgins handpicked himself in order to expand the narrative of the exhibition. In this manner, the museum’s objects will be exhibited for the first time beyond their cultural and historical significance.
