Visual Pond Artspace, Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to the visual arts. Based in Manila, Visual Pond aims to be a dynamic player in the Philippine contemporary art scene through projects that engage and promote local artists both here and abroad.

We at Visual Pond envision a contemporary art scene that is vibrant, open to experimentation and supported by the community. By taking initiatives and creating opportunities for Filipino artists, we work towards this realization for the visual arts locale.

Asides from Manila-based projects, we are also interested in regional and international exchanges on ideas, concepts and possible collaborations with definite end products.

PASSAGE: Photo Documentation

End Frame Video Art Project 3: Present, a Philippine video art festival, proudly launched with Passage, the first solo exhibition by Tad ErmitaƱo, which opened on 15 January 2011 at Pablo Gallery, Fort Bonifacio. A site-specific work responsive to the two rooms of Pablo and the stairs between them, Passage utilized multiple projections and video mapping technology in a crossover of fairy tales and science fiction. The exhibition was extended from its original 29 January closing date to 5 February 2011. ErmitaƱo talked more on his work on 29 January. 

Presented by Visual Pond, End Frame Video Art Project 3's theme Present refers to the current project’s focus on selected Philippine contemporary artists’ practices in video art. Throughout the festival, each artist stages a show presenting new video work in various venues from 2011 to 2012. End Frame Video Art Project 3 is curated by Clarissa Chikiamco.
