This will become available for viewing on October 22, which coincides with the reopening of the National Museum of Anthropology.

The exhibition’s installations depict its artist’s “quirky retelling of our cultural struggles throughout history.”

Tahimik personally gave a tour of his artworks during a recent media preview.

Here, he also conducted a ceremonial performance together with his fellow “Indio-Genius.”

“Tatay Kidlat…conducted a ceremonial performance–beginning with a “reenactment” of his cultural reawakening followed by various incantations by notable members of ethnolinguistic groups who have collaborated with the National Artist through the years,” the National Museum recalled.
