The Future That Was
 Patricia Perez Eustaquio

Tyler Rollins Fine Art, 529 W20th St., NYC (10W)

The works in the two exhibitions (New York and Manila) are reflections upon the structures and ideas that produce, frame and promote art and design. Eustaquio weaves an open-ended narrative that examines notions of innovation and novelty, timeliness and timelessness, particularly as they relate to the language of design and fashion. She is interested in how material, fabrication, and intention combine to form an object that then takes on a life of its own. “If you survey our visual culture,” she writes, “we are confronted with a fabricated reality – an environment full of objects, each of which have their own histories, have their own lives, and I suppose it is this ‘life’ from start to finish that really interests me. This ‘life’, this object represents function, aesthetic, desire.” The show is a continuation of the artist’s solo exhibition of the same title, curated by Patrick Flores and currently on view at the Jorge B. Vargas Museum in Quezon City, Metro Manila, the Philippines. - thru Oct 19
