INVITE: Beginnings of Philippine Visual Arts by Dr. Esperanza Gatbonton, September 7

Join us for Beginnings of Philippine Visual Arts by Dr. Esperanza Gatbonton on September 7, first part of the lecture series Understanding Philippine Visual Art Through the Collections of Ateneo Art Gallery and Lopez Museum and Library.

The lecture series will introduce participants to Philippine art from the pre and early colonial period to the present through talks by experts on various topics that will combine a discussion of the historical context of production plus a more in depth look at specific artists and artworks. What sets this lecture series apart from others is that participants will have the opportunity to study the actual artworks that are being discussed, giving them a greater appreciation than images projected onto a screen ever could. 

07 September to 26 October (Saturdays, 9 am to 12 nn)
Php 6,400.00 (complete series)/ Php 900.00 per session

Certificates will be issued to participants who are able to complete the series of lectures. To help ensure that participants will have ample opportunity to engage with the speakers and artworks, we are limiting the number of participants to only 30 individuals per session and will be on a first come first serve basis. Special rates will be offered to Lopez Museum members and Ateneo de Manila faculty & students. Attached is the registration form and flyer for the lecture series.
