On 21 February 2019, the Ayala Museum in partnership with the BPI Foundation and Mercedes Zobel opened to the public a landmark exhibition featuring the works of artist and educator Mark Lewis Lim Higgins – its last exhibition before the museum closed for renovations in 2019.
Entitled Gold in Our Veins, the exhibition tells the story of a re-imagined antiquity through a series of portraits inspired by the ancient histories of Indochina, the East Indies, and the Philippine Archipelago.
Together with these works of art are objects from the Ayala Museum’s collection handpicked by Higgins himself to expand the exhibition’s narrative; an unprecedented undertaking as the museum’s objects for the first time will be shown beyond their historical and cultural significance.
