The NCCA Gallery and its on-going call for exhibit proposal is the Commission’s response to the clamor and demands of the growing Philippine contemporary art scene. Dedicated primarily to contemporary arts, the space is a joint initiative of the National Committee on Art Galleries (NCAG) under the Subcommission on Cultural Heritage and the National Committee on Visual Arts (NCVA) under the Subcommission on the Arts. Through the gallery, both the NCAG and the NCVA aim to provide artists a venue for exposure without curtailing creative exploration and expression. Likewise, established artists will have an opportunity to share their conceptual narratives to the audience and encourage engagements in the arts.
