ACC grantee Anton del Castillo opens “The Given Order” with Jason Dy, S.J. The exhibit, curated by Ricky Francisco, offers a visual exploration of the different tangents of faith and tradition in our past and present lives. Religion as agent of social order and transformation is looked into by Fr. Dy, who uses art in conjunction with the spiritual life of communities he is connected with. While del Castillo’s works engage with the anxieties and violence in the perception and experience of the individual and collective faith.

Anton del Castillo received his ACC Philippine Fellowship in 2006 to observe contemporary art activities and undertake research on Byzantine icon paintings in American collections.
