Nov 17 — Perspectives on Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo’s Unfinished Works with “Filling the Canvas”


A halt or even of cessation are evident in works that display bare spaces, intersecting lines and grids, and unfinished strokes that need a bit more paint. Browsing through the numerous works of Filipino master Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo, the concept for the second major exhibition of the Lopez Museum and Library entitled Open Ends came to light.

This November 17, Tuesday, 2 to 4 pm, Ateneo de Manila University Instructor Isa Nazareno will speak about the numerous drawings, sketches, studies and unfinished paintings of Filipino master Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo. Prof. Nazareno will present new perspectives on Hidalgo’s works that speak of an interesting phase in the formation of an artist’s work, a segment that he might not have intended for the public to see.

Again these questions remain: “what happens when art and art-making are interrupted? Is an unfinished work still worthy of display? Why would a work with no perfunctory conclusion deserve a second look?

Fill in the Canvas seeks to flesh out the relevance of these fragments, clues into an art practice that created iconic and important works of Philippine art.

The lecture is brought to you in part by Gourmet Farms Inc. Registration is at Php 135 for adults and Php 115 for students and museum members.
