Founded by Patrick Cruz in 2014, Kamias Triennial is a non-profit tri-annual art event in Kamias, Quezon City, Philippines. Kamias Triennial aims to propel contemporary and experimental ideas within the community of Quezon City. The first iteration gathered local Filipino artists to create works that responded under the thematic of ephemerality, impermanence, and temporality as a means of inquiry in understanding the prevalent model of artistic production and consumption in the Philippines today. The event offered artists a space to show and engage work without commercial strain allowing experimental and non-commercial content to surface.

The second event, taking place in 2017, introduced new artists to the context of the Philippines. Taking up exchange as the underlying strategy, the project began as a research trip in December 2016, where co-curator Allison Collins, Patrick Cruz, and artists Steffani Ling and Zebulon Zang traveled for research and pleasure to plan and discuss the project. Culminating in June 2017, the outcome was a week-long exhibition, exchange market, and event series that invited artists to make new works, collaborations, performances and dialogue. The project continues beyond these events with the goal of opening a durable pathway for further sharing of the strategies, processes, and styles of artists in the region of Manila with counterparts from across Canada.
