Soil and Stones, Souls and Songs @MCAD

This major traveling and transforming exhibition presented by Kadist, the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (MCAD) in Manila, and Para Site, and curated by Cosmin Costinas and Inti Guerrero is based on several intertwined lines of tension and narratives found today in the realities, artistic and cultural production, and contemporary thought in the Asian sphere and beyond. It is constructed on a spectre of art practices, new commissions, works from the Kadist collection, case studies curated by 
Yongwoo Lee, Qu Chang, and Simon Soon, and experiments on forms and processes addressing, directly or symbolically, several broad categories of issues. These can all be traced to the seismic forces that have transformed the world over the past decades, with Asia being at the forefront of these changes.
