Cosmic Concerns
Nena Saguil & Fadjar Sidik
: Philippines

Cosmic Concerns presents a rare encounter celebrating universal themes of cosmos, abstraction, and artistic legacy. It invites audiences to explore the cosmic imagination of Nena Saguil and Fadjar Sidik, highlighting how their art transcends time and place, resonating with the human quest for meaning and connection.

Art Agenda and Lumena Auctions are pleased to jointly present the exhibition, Cosmic Concerns: Nena Saguil & Fadjar Sidik which runs at Lumena Auction’s brand-new gallery at Mahogany Place, Cebu from 28 June to 12 July. The exhibition features two of Southeast Asia’s leading 20th -century painters who each made significant contributions to abstract art in the region. Cosmic Concerns is a landmark occasion in many ways: it is the first time both Saguil and Sidik’s works are juxtaposed in one exhibition and the first time both artists’ works are shown in Cebu.

At the 60th edition of the Venice Biennale presently taking place, both Nena Saguil and Fadjar Sidik are represented by a work each on loan from the Philippine and Indonesian national collections respectively. They are the only two 20th -century artists from Southeast Asia amongst 37 others featured in the abstraction section of the Biennale’s main exhibition, Foreigners Everywhere.
