Iloilo Critics Circle to Launch Art Journal

The Iloilo Critics Circle (ICC) will launch the maiden issue of the Iloilo Art Review, an art journal jointly published by the ICC and Kasingkasing Press, on March 18, 2023, at 5:00 p.m., at Mamusa Gallery in Festive Walk, Megaworld.

Envisioned to come out every year, the Iloilo Art Review contains articles on art spaces in Iloilo City and Kalibo (Aklan), solo and group exhibition reviews, artists’ profiles, and an interview with a prominent artist.

Its cover features the collaborative artwork, “Alukaba” (Shell), of the Ogtonganon Visual Arts League.

Its editors are John E. Barrios, Ted Aldwin E. Ong, and Noel Galon de Leon.

The Iloilo Critics Circle hopes that the Iloilo Art Review will “occupy the space allocated by the ecosystem for art criticism and contribute to the dynamic interaction of the various elements for a vibrant art sector; stimulate critical thinking among stakeholders and spark public discourse around art, and to sustain the initiative under the conditions of inclusivity and diversity.”

The Iloilo Critics Circle is composed of writers from the academe and social media.

They write art reviews and criticisms in their blogs and the weekly newspapers in Iloilo. The ICC members are: John E. Barrios, Ted Aldwin E. Ong, Noel Galon de Leon, Allyn Canja, Theodore Ricardo R. Bautista, John Anthony Estolloso, and Eric Abalajon.
