Pablo X Kick Off Anniversary Show opening (Pablo X Part 1)








10 Years is 10 years of seeing neighboring shops come and go here at Cubao X, surrounding structures being demolished and replaced with new ones, a procession of fashion and music trends in constant retro procession, and the denizens and hangers-on of this quaint cul-de-sac at the heart of Cubao shopping center getting older and younger, and former party-addicts becoming doting parents to pets and babies.  But as art is forever, those 10 years for Pablo will just be a marker for another chapter, another decade of more challenging and more lustrous art years ahead. So cheers to this night, and to the coming exhibits. There’s still three more to go until September.

This first leg, titled Into One Category or The Other is curated by the collaborative duo of Dina Gadia and Allan Balisi as Saturnino Basilia.  Read more about the show here.

A zine catalog for the show was also released and it sells for just 100 bux. Make sure to get your copy now!
