Body + Art Traveling Exhibit
More than 30 artists participated in the Body + Art traveling art exhibit. The exhibit aims to generate conversations about HIV in the country. The artworks were displayed in various venues in Metro Manila and Batangas.
The exhibit opened with the Body Positive dance production on September 12, 2015, at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. The gala included an HIV Awareness talk by Dr. Maria Stella Flores of the Shell Pilipinas Foundation and an HIV testimonial from Ms. Elena Felix of Pinoy Plus. From there, the exhibit was brought to several venues. Through partnerships with HIV support groups and the health community, the group hopes that the exhibits can also be a platform for outreach programs for HIV patients. The touring exhibit aims to promote a positive and proactive stance towards HIV through proper awareness. Listed below are the venues and dates of the traveling exhibit.

Body + Art Gallery
The Body + Art exhibit series also included a student exhibition mounted by fine arts students from the Technological University of the Philippines. The emBody exhibit focused on the word- "embody." The artworks reflect on the body as a physical presence and as an actor that interacts with its environment. This exhibition aspires to inspire others to see existence as an action, and being as becoming. The exhibit was opened on March 14, 2016, at the GSIS Museo ng Sining.
Participating artists: Mark Martinez, Paul John Andayran, Clark Manalo, Maribel Magpoc, Kendall Conlidon, John Raphael Carloto, and Kim Fredrick Gaceja.
