Artists’ Talk on Performance Art: Jeff Carnay and Myra Beltran

On September 11, 2010, The Lopez Memorial Museum and Library will be having its first Artist’s Talk on performance art featuring Jeffrey Carnay and Myra Beltran.

Carnay’s visual and performance works are known in the local and in the international traditional and alternative spaces of the art world. He is a member of the core committee of TutoK artists initiative, and of the NeWorlDisorder, an open, collaborative and loose multimedia art initiative. He was the convener of “Bulong”, a night of poetry, songs and other performances and is the lead vocalist of the band “earthfishfish”.

Beltran, a pioneer in Philippine dance, is the country’s foremost solo dance artist known for her experimental choreographic work. By forming Dance forum in 1994, she has been leading a generation of artists into new terrain in Philippine contemporary dance. Her uniqueness, artistry, and courage has garnered her the ALAB NG HARAYA Award 2001 National Commission for Culture and the Arts, for Individual Recognition in the Performing Arts.

Artists’ Talk complements the ongoing exhibition “After the Fact”, which runs until September 18, 2010. The exhibit evokes recollections of the museum’s past exhibitions as well as a purview of the institution’s future direction. It features key works from its collection and works by contemporary artists Imelda Cajipe-Endaya, Leo Abaya, Gaston Damag, Antipas Delotavo, Keith Sicat, Jeffrey Carnay, Kiri Dalena, Ann Tiukinhoy Pamintuan, Claro Ramirez, Jean Marie Syjuco and Ann Wizer.
