mo_space opening

Wednesday, August 15th, 2007

In between Boracay and Palawan, we were back in Manila for one night to catch the inaugural exhibition at mo_space, Mawen and David Ong’s new art and design space at Bonifacio High Street. Big group show, many of the usual suspects implicated, great fun. Yahoo, new art venue in Metro Manila! The show was entitle “I have nothing to paint and I’m painting it,” and was co-curated by Nilo Ilarde and Roberto Chabet.
