Welcome to the Space Encounters Gallery
The Space Encounters Gallery is an organic offshoot from interior design firm and mid-century modern furniture brand Space Encounters.
Space Encounters Gallery aims to promote a community that embraces reciprocity of ideas and art appreciation in a welcoming environment. Expect more exhibits and events that put the ingenuity of Filipino artistry at the forefront.
The concept for this new, must-visit space was inspired by the local brand’s latest collection, “The New Romantics,” which brings to the spotlight classical pieces mixed with mid-century modern and industrial elements.
The Gallery is set in a 124-square meter area that was originally intended as an extension of the Space Encounters furniture showroom. It features vignettes of mid-century modern furniture, vintage items, and art in its various forms—a study on how accessible, versatile, and fun art should be.
Each ensemble is carefully curated to showcase how each decorative element—when taken as a whole—can create a space that’s inviting and functional; even the hallway leading to the Gallery offers snippets of art and furniture that co-exist to create an intimate and inviting ambiance.
July – August Show
July 24 - August 16, 2019 10 am - 6 pm
Back-to-back solo exhibits are Richard Buxani, Aaron Pormarejo, and Jay Ragma—artists who have already made a name for themselves in the local art scene.
Richard Buxani’s Brut Force is both a show of the artist’s mastery of metal sculptures, and a throwback to his beginnings in the field of architecture. Aaron Pormarejo’s 3D is a study on the less-is-more philosophy featuring scrap materials as his media. Meanwhile, Jay Ragma’s Memory of Arrival and Departure is a visual account that retells the story of losing connections in the form of intersecting lines disrupted by striking hues.
Join us at the opening of Brut Force, 3D, and Memory of Arrival and Departure on July 24, 2019 at 6pm. Still on display is Paco Pili x Space Encounters’ Fear of Flying, which was launched last May. These exhibits are staged in partnership with Heineken and Don Papa Rum.
Space Encounters Gallery is located at Unit 7D, 7/F Padilla Building, F. Ortigas Jr. Road, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. The gallery is open from 10am to 6pm on weekdays, and 11am to 5pm on Saturdays by appointment. Email spacegallery.info@gmail.
