Through the activation of an integral segment of the Lopez Museum and Library’s collection, the World War II propaganda, and election-related archival materials, Propaganda fleshes out the idea of myth-making and its ability to inspire change in society, and conversely, the formation of a fantasy or outright fallacy packaged as a promise that never gets fulfilled.

Propaganda brings together works of featured artists Nune Alvarado, Santiago Bose, Joey Cobcobo, Don M. Salubayba, and Alvin Yapan along with a selection from the museum and library’s collection of Juan Luna, Félix Resurrección Hidalgo, National Artists Napoleon Abueva, Fernando Amorsolo, Jose Joya, Cesar Legaspi, and J. Elizalde Navarro.
