Music, lights, and Filipino Islamic culture inside the ‘Manara’

On Tuesday, May 2, the Ayala Museum plaza was filled with music and lights as "Manara" was finally unveiled.

The 20-foot structure was an impressive sight, showered in different colors and standing as an open invitation for self-reflections. Inside the structure, several questions serve as prompts for introspection: What do you really want? What happens when you get it?

"Manara" is a collaboration between acclaimed artists Toym Imao and Lilianna Manahan, done in partnership with the Ayala Foundation.

The exhibit serves as a platform to give a new perspective to Filipino Islamic culture amid stereotypes born from conflicts.

"Manara" is open to the public until May 30.
