The Metropolitan Museum of Manila and AWD Foundation for the Arts, Inc. bring its second touring exhibition – Sensorium: The Interconnectedness of Everyone and Everything on April 4-16, 2011 at the East Bridgeway of SM CITY BACOLOD.

Featuring the works of contemporary artist Allison Wong David, the exhibit reflects on the communication aspect of human sensory experiences.  Even without technological gadgets, people constantly exchange messages with other people and with their surroundings.  The exhibit encourages the viewers to reflect and be aware of the expressed, subtle, or hidden signals and information that they transmit, receive, and respond to in the course of interacting. 

The exhibit, named after the part of the brain that receives and coordinates all external stimuli, integrates a broad range of artworks that indulge the senses, including paintings, sculptures, fabric art, edible art and mixed media pieces.    It features a mosaic of portraits that have been repeatedly rendered with different techniques and expressions, sensory boxes, and tactile artworks with Braille features that communicate with the blind.

Sensorium is part of year-long extension exhibits of the Metropolitan Museum of Manila at select SM Supermalls in an effort to promote art and culture to a broader audience.

To see a greater variety of Philippine and international art exhibitions, visit the Metropolitan Museum of Manila at the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Complex, Roxas Boulevard, Manila.  Museum days are Monday to Saturday, 9am – 6pm.  For inquiries, call 521-1517 and 523-7855, or email
