Don’t let your plans for today go up in smoke. Drop by for the last day of Young Star’s super sweet celebration of talent and our generation’s creative nation, featuring some of our own friends and faves such as BJ Pascual, Bia Catbagan, and Cholo dela Vega collaborating with the likes of artists CJ de Silva, Valerie Chua, and Carina Santos. We were all there for the opening a few days ago with the usual suspects aka buddies, booze, beats, and good eats. Check out what else went down at Young Star’s 16 X 16. Happy birthday, babes!
Familiar faces and new friends alike came to ogle the sixteen special collaborations on display at the Archaeology Gallery in Rockwell for 16 X 16, a 16th anniversary project by Young Star, Manila’s feistiest broadsheet. They’ve got the spunk of teendom, but with the spice of wisdom. Everyone there truly enjoyed the presentation of today’s hottest young talents. From rustic assemblages to post office-channeling collages and polaroid poetry, every work highlighted each individual artist’s style while also fusing each pair’s vision. If you’re a fan of what #fun in the Philippines really means, then you can’t miss it. Today’s your last chance, so go, young stars, go!—D-SIÓN
