    The gallery’s inaugural location at 277 Connecticut St. Greenhills East, Mandaluyong specializes in curator-led group exhibitions, forming a dynamic platform for artistic exploration.

    On the other hand, its branch, located at The Alley at Karrivin Plaza in Makati City, was inaugurated in 2018 with three dedicated exhibition areas, showcasing solo exhibitions featuring a select group of artists. This expansion amplifies the gallery’s mission of fostering artistic diversity and excellence in the heart of Metro Manila.

Michelle Perez, the self-taught artist behind The Grid Revisited: Sliced Cubes, combined painting, sculpture, and collage as her creative tools to form what she wants to call “microcosms”.
