Siren’s Hall at Mo_
Over at Mo_space located at 3/F Mos Design, B2 Bonifacio High Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, an exhibit called Siren’s Hall is currently on display. The exhibit actually started last June 5 and will run until July 11. So what is it exactly?

According to its producers, Siren’s Hall is “a way to tie up music and art together not as cover art to a band’s album but as separate projects that talk about music in a visual way.” Imagine it as the intersection of two arts—music and the visual arts—to convey an expression usually reserved for the other medium. That is, visual paintings expressing music, and vice versa.

Participating artists include Raena Abella, Allan Jay Balisi, Tim Brown, Nice Buenaventura, Lyle Buencamino, Mariano Ching, Lena Cobangbang, Louie Cordero, Lourd De Veyra, Erick Encinares, Dexter Fernandez, Dina Gadia, Eugene Jarque, Hitoshi Kanamura, Sam Kiyoumarsi, Romeo Lee, Pow Martinez, Kat Medina, Marcus Nada, Gary-Ross Pastrana, Mark Ramsel Salvatus III, Bru Sim, Gani Simpliciano, Masi Solano, Enteng Viray, MM Yu, Manuel Alvero, Videoke Partylist Collective, Radioactive Sago Project, Sleepyheads, and Vic Balanon.


Mo_space is open daily, 11AM to 8PM
