In “Art and Autism,” currently on view at the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, the creativity and talent of artists with autism are brought to the fore. Curated by architect Gerry Torres of Center for Campus Art, the exhibit also showcases selected design works by CSB students who were inspired by initial designs of the artists with autism.

Students from the school’s programs on Fashion Design and Merchandising, Industrial Design, and Architecture selected paintings by Chico Joaquin, Daniel Sanchez, Jorel Alegre, Julyan Harrison, Karl Oliveros, Muneer Pena, Samantha Kaspar, and Vico Cham and used them as a jumping point for their projects. Studying the artists’ patterns, colors, symbols, shapes, and forms, the students were able to create a broad range of toys, light fixtures, jewelry, bags, accessories, garments, and furniture. Through the exhibit, CSB has demonstrated that the “sustainable practice for artists with autism” is viable.

The project is produced by the Unilab Foundation, the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde’s Center for Inclusive Education and the Center for Campus Art. Runs until July 29 at the 12th Floor Gallery of the School of Design and Arts Campus of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, Pablo Ocampo Street, Manila.
