Filipino rapper Curtismith is set to launch his debut album ‘Museo’ through an art exhibitof the same name.
The showcase, scheduled to take place on July 13 to 25, will be staged at the auditorium of Pinto Academy in Antipolo City. Collaborating with local art destination Pintô Art Museum, the musician tapped 17 artists to create pieces based off the lyrics of songs from his forthcoming LP.
Featured artists include Candice Arellano, Argie Bandoy, Anna Bautista, Ranelle Dial, Sandra Fabie-Gfeller, Dex Fernandez, Auggie Fontanilla, Romeo Lee, Ferdie Montemayor, Bea Nazareno, Jono Pisano, King Puentespina, Pogs Samson, Duane Villanueva, Cris Villanueva Jr., Reg Yuson and Jeona Zulueta.
The songs from Curtismith’s new album will only be available exclusively at the venue for a limited time during the showcase. Afterwards, the album will be uploaded on all major streaming platforms.
