The Creative City Council of Baguio City opens the Alimuom Contemporary Art Exhibition as part of the 4th Ibagiw Festival 2021 at the Basement Gallery of the Baguio Convention Center on November 13.
Led by curator Prof. Fara Manuel-Nolasco from the University of the Philippines Baguio Fine Arts Program, Alimuom Contemporary Art Exhibition takes inspiration from the concept of alimuom or petrichor, the sweet smell that permeates the earth after the touch of a gentle summer rain. Its arrival feels shrouded in mystery—like an unexpected homecoming, perhaps a becoming. It is an earthy scent that gently evokes memories and floods us with emotions.
The exhibition forms part of the UNESCO Creative City of Baguio's 4th Ibagiw Festival 2021 led by its artists and artisans with the mission to create, integrate, and elevate the city's creative communities in spite of the ongoing pandemic.
Alimuom will run from November 13 to December 12, 2021 from 10:00 in the morning to 6:00 in the evening. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, IATF protocols such as physical distancing shall be strictly followed.
