She is founding president of Kababaihan sa Sining at Bagong Sibol na Kamalayan (Kasibulan), a feminist arts organization active since 1987, and founder of Pananaw, the first publication of its kind on Philippine art. Ms. Cajipe Endaya is also a widely-published curator, writer, and cultural worker. The exhibit is co-curated by Lara Acuin and Con Cabrera. Adjacent to the exhibit, the CCP will host monthly public programs until November onsite and streamed online.

Sotheby’s Singapore auction surpasses expectations

SOTHEBY’s first auction of Modern & Contemporary Art in Singapore brought a total of SG$24.5 million ($18 million), surpassing pre-sale expectations in the region of SG$18 million ($13 million). This also marked the highest total for any sale held by Sotheby’s in Singapore. Ninety-four percent of the lots were sold. Held in response to the ever-increasing demand from a growing collector base in the region, the sale was led by a rare auction appearance of a work by Walter Spies (his Animal fable was the top-selling lot, achieving SG$4 million or $2.9 million), a fresh-to-the-market riverscape by Singaporean Modern Art pioneer Georgette Chen (Boats and Shophouses, sold to a Southeast Asian collector for SG$2 million or $1.5 million), and a painting by Willem Gerard Hofker held in the same private collection for more than 25 years (Melis, composition featuring Ni Dablig with Ni Gemblong with a boy behind the gender music instrument almost doubled its high estimate to achieve SG$2.3 million or $1.6 million, from an estimated SG$700,000 to SG$1,200,000). Two works by Filipino National ArtistFernando Amorsolo achieved prices beyond their high estimates: View of Manila Bay sold for SG$201,600 ($145,000) from its estimated SG$80,000-SG$20,000, and Fishermen brought SG$226,800 ($163,000) from its estimated SG$50,000- SG$70,000. The auction saw participation from over 20 countries, with more than half of the bidders from the Southeast Asian region.
