On November 29, at 2 – 4PM, Merv Espina will join us for the third run of Café of Letters: Reading Group. In “An Abridged History of Forgetting”, Espina looks at alternative and lost histories. Grounding the discussion on specific moments and fragments in Philippine art, among others, he underscores that history is more about narratives of complicity than full-proof infallibility.
Judy Freya Sibayan’s “Performance” (Philippine Art Supplement, Vol. 2, No. 6, Nov-Dec 1981) juxtaposed with a recent video interview with Jose Tence Ruiz (by Con Cabrera for her upcoming White Noise exhibition) are references for the discussion.
Registration fee is P135 (P115 for students and members of the museum’s membership program). It comes with a free admission and guided tour of the current exhibition. Gourmet Farms Inc. will serve freshly brewed coffee during the event.
Museum hours are Mondays to Saturdays, except holidays, 8 AM to 5 PM. The Lopez Museum and Library is at the ground floor, BenPres Building, Exchange Road corner Meralco Avenue, Pasig City.
