ArtCebu has recently been invited to represent the Philippines at the Borneo Arts Festival ’19 on September 29, 2019. The said festival will gather artists from various ASEAN countries to perform and/or exhibit their artworks in Labuan, Malaysia.
Seven visual artists will be representing Cebu and will bring with them their best artworks highlighting the culture and beauty of the province. Among the artists that will be participating are the following:
The artists will be leaving Cebu on September 23 so they can join pre-event activities on September 25-26, 2019 in Labuan.
This participation at the Borneo Arts Festival will allow Cebuano artists to showcase Cebuano arts to an international audience. It will also help the artists network with other organizations and jointly come up with projects in the near future that will benefit artists from all regions, especially Cebu.
ArtCebu’s vision is to put Cebu in the map as a major global destination for arts and culture.

ArtCebu, in partnership with the Cebu City Museum, is currently holding a multiple-artist exhibition. Among the artists being featured are veterans Jesse Rona, Jess Najarro, Alan Dimayacyac, Jojo Gubalane, Ramon de Dios, Emmanuel Iradel, and Benz Flores. Other artists featured are Lida Aguilar, Lito Reynaldo Egam, Eric Chris Almaden, Rainer Duhaylungsod, Mean Mustard, Jun Dale Bebita , Rhea Victoria Rosacina, and Jerome Castillo.
The exhibit opened last October 27, 2018 and will end on November 17, 2018. Entitled “Paglatas sa Katuigan”, the exhibit features artworks that convey the changing beauty of Cebu, its people, culture, and landscape through time.
“Paglatas sa Katuigan” coincides with Cebu City’s celebration of October as Museums and Galleries month. Its reception at the museum (second floor of the Cebu City Public Library) last October 27, 2018 at 6:30 PM was attended by artists, special guests, and friends.
The reception was simple but intimate, with focus on one-on-one interactions with the artists. Artists Allan Dimayacyac and Jesse Rona shared insights and their perspective about art in Cebu as it evolved through the years.
