THE OUTPOST

WHEN TO GO: January 2017, Second floor, the Alley at Karrivin, 2316 Pasong Tamo Extension, Makati.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW: Launching a Manila space fulfills the next step in the vision of the Acuzar's, according local audiences exposure to the pieces created in Bataan. The Outpost opens in January at The Alley, the vibrant creative hub in Pasong Tamo Extension.

“We want art that we can build a community around. We are not a gallery, and works are not for sale. The Outpost will have a salon in a section of the space where people can have conversations, read art books. We want it to be more than a place that people walk into and look at art, but are too intimidated to ask questions.”

Jam’s passion comes across so strongly, and she seems unfazed by any potential challenges. The biggest hurdle will involve sustaining the foundation’s non-profit nature. “I’m sure the first year may be rough, but I think once people see the art, it will be easier to generate supportive patrons.”

WHAT TO CHECK OUT: Carlos Amorales, a Mexican artist who represented the Dutch at the 2003 Venice Biennale, will exhibit an interactive installation, We’ll See How Everything Reverberates, inspired by Alexander Calder’s mobiles. “These are the kinds of work we are interested in”, Jam explains, “where we can create a program around. Carlos’ works can be used as musical instruments, so we can have performances while the exhibit goes on.”

Up next after Amorales is the celebrated Pawel Althamer. The Polish artist will look to the Black Nazarene procession in Quiapo as the fulcrum of his work.
