Valencia, Negros Oriental – Mark your calendars for July 2, 2023, as Mugna Gallery holds “Halaran,” a community quilting workshop where participants will have the opportunity to engage in a communal quilting experience guided by exhibiting artist Iris Tirambulo.

Here, attendees will be encouraged to contribute in the creation of a community tapestry, expanding its boundaries by incorporating their personal and hand-stitched stories.

In addition, “Halaran” will feature a talk that delves into the history and presence of thread-based art in the Philippines. Tirambulo herself will share some personal inspirations through her artistic journey, enabling attendees to gain a deeper understanding of her creative process.

Capping off the day will be a site-specific dance performance where members of the Dance In Motion Company: Dylzaree Recentes, Ian Nick Tiba, Samantha Bernadas, and Alexandra Bernadas, react to the space and the works in the exhibition, creating an experience that is both meaningful and memorable.

This event serves as an apt companion to Tirambulo’s first solo exhibition, “Halad,” where visitors encounter a collection of intricate vignettes that weave personal narratives with shared emotions — metaphors drawn from keen observation of insect behavior, all translated through the mediums of thread, fabric, and artistic labor.

“Halaran” invites individuals from all walks of life to connect, create, and expand the boundaries of their own life experiences by connecting it with others. To join, interested parties are encouraged to visit Mugna Gallery between 12 pm and 5 pm on Sunday, July 2, 2023.
