May 26 - July 14, 2018

PINTA*DOS, is pleased to mark its one-year anniversary with STRANDS, an exhibition in two interwoven parts dedicated to textiles of the Philippines and their influence on contemporary art. STRANDS is organized by contemporary artists Maryrose Cobarrubias Mendoza and Joseph Santarromana.
Installed salon-style, this first exhibit showcases a selection of textiles from the collection of Linda Nietes and Robert J. Little, Jr., who have collected textiles for more than 40 years from all over the Philippine archipelago, including hand-woven t’nalak by anonymous T’boli artisans of Mindanao using abacá (Manila hemp) fibers from native Philippine banana plants.
