12:30 pm: I’ve been invited to live blog at MetMuseum Manila today. To make this experience richer, I’ve intentionally avoided researching on anything about the artist and exhibit. I also feel it’d be a great writing exercise for me; I’ll be more candid (I think), and you’d be learning about Claudio Bravo the same time I am!
About to leave for the museum. Let’s hope the Wifi there works!
1:50pm: Semi-fail. No wifi while we’ll be going around the exhibit. Broadcast will be a delayed telecast, folks! But no worries for now. I’ll be writing as I go along still.
When I heard that this roving exhibit is in town, I knew I had to see it. Why? I LOVE JAPAN! It’s my absolute favorite country to visit. I love the culture, the kookiness, the innovation, and all the fun and crazy stuff from this amazing but disaster-prone nation. The Japan: Kingdom of Characters exhibition is sponsored by the Japan Foundation and showcases the special connection the Japanese have with characters from anime and manga.
