OPENING at Artinformal Greenhills, Dec 08 2018 at 6pm:

Toggle: Engage-Disengage
Jose Tence Ruiz and DengCoy Miel

Exhibition will run until Jan 12 2019!

Artinformal is pleased to present Toggle: Engage-Disengage, a two-man exhibit by Jose Tence Ruiz and acclaimed illustrator DengCoy Miel, opening on December 8, 2018, 6PM, at the gallery’s Greenhills location. The exhibit will run until January 5, 2019.

Curated by Tence Ruiz, the two artists will present new works in mixed media of a vascillating discourse between two different locations, scrutinizing the specifics of the past and the future of our agonized present. In this era of uber convenience where we toggle into an indifferent ambivalence, we find ourselves oscillating between the excesses which are now prevalent, as well as between the virtual and the real.

DengCoy Miel is a two-time Reuben Awardee for Cartooning. He is also editorial illustrator and designer for the Singapore Straits Times, The New York Times, and Philippine Star.

Jose Tence Ruiz is a multimedia artist, independent writer, and curator. He was Philippines representative to the 56th Venice Biennial in 2015.
