05 June 2013 – After the success of his Manila Vice exhibit in Sète, France, in collaboration with MIAM (Musée International des Arts Modestes), Filipino artist Manuel Ocampo reaffirmed his vital presence in the international art scene.
The solo exhibition features 31 of the international artist’s works, some of which were recently created in Montpellier. The well-attended vernissage held on May 30 in Carré Sainte Anne saw the solo exhibit’s success.
The city of Montpellier, France’s 8th largest city, under the auspices of Mayor Hélène Mandroux, Vice Mayor Philippe Saurel and in partnership with MIAM President Hervé Di Rosa and Curator Numa Hambursin, organized Mr. Ocampo’s solo exhibition in Carré Sainte Anne, a neo-gothic church built in the 1800s and now Montpellier’s prime exhibition center for contemporary art.
Philippine Ambassador to France Cristina Ortega thanked the Musée International des Arts Modestes and the City of Montpellier “for making the exhibition more than a possibility but a success,” and congratulated Mr. Ocampo for validating anew that art has no borders.
Mr. Ocampo’s solo exhibit runs from May 31 to September 15 at the Carré Sainte Anne in Montpellier. END
