Remix: Santiago Bose is a postmodern retrospective of the late Baguio visual artist and cultural provocateur Santiago Bose. Borne out of the vestiges of his legacy, the exhibit contextualizes his impact on Philippine art through modern takes of Bose's reach by more than 35 visual, literary, and multimedia artists.

Among the highlights are literary and visual works inspired by anting-anting, and videos chronicling Bose's life, work, and influence. Also on view is Bose's final, unfinished work, the mural Return of the Comeback, as well as a collaborative remix of Return of the Comeback by contemporary artists.

 

Remix: Santiago Bose is presented by the Yuchengco Museum and the Santiago Bose estate.
