Mang Emo + Mag-himo Grand Piano Project is an ongoing project hosted by the Cultural Center of the Philippines and Fremantle Arts Centre. The project explores the cross-cultural and cross-generational possibilities that emerge out of Alwin’s commemoration of his family’s piano manufacturing business, Javincello & Company.

Alwin was born in Manila in 1964 and moved to Australia in 1995. His practice is diverse embracing installation, sculpture and performance with a focus on questions about migration and translation. He recently completed the Thuringowa Helicopter Project with Pinnacles Gallery, Thuringowa, Queensland.
