In a digital age dominated by screens, our perception of art has shifted, magnified by the pandemic. Online exhibitions and virtual art acquisition have become the norm. However, Braille for the Seeing opening on November 7, 2023, at the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Bulwagang Roberto Chabet, seeks to revive direct art encounters by exploring contemporary photography in various forms. Originally a response to digital art trends, this project, initiated by Teo Esguerra and Gerome Soriano in 2019, has finally come to fruition. Featuring a diverse group of Filipino contemporary artists, “Braille for the Seeing” invites you to step away from screens and engage in a multi-sensory art experience that challenges preconceptions and broadens your understanding of contemporary photography in the context of contemporary art.
