Triumph of Philippine Art Homecoming

ex-triumph1
After exhibiting the works of today’s renowned Filipino visual artists at two university museums in the USA, the show Triumph of Philippine Art will hold its homecoming at the Ayala Museum this July.

Triumph first opened at the George Segal Gallery of Montclair State University in New Jersey on September 21, 2013. Curated by the gallery’s Philippine-born Director, M. Teresa Lapid Rodriguez, the exhibition is inspired by our long history of socio-economic/political struggles and the Philippines’ search for a national identity. This unique retrospective is the first exhibit in America to ever specifically use artwork to tell the nation’s political story, beginning with the oppression of the martial law period (1972-1986), leading up to the 1986 non-violent “revolution that surprised the world” and ultimately resulting in the vibrant and robust art of a free society at the turn of the 21st century.

Featured in the exhibition are works of Leo Abaya, Benedicto “BenCab” Cabrera, Buen Calubayan, Ernest Concepcion, Mideo Cruz, Imelda Cajipe-Endaya, Brenda Fajardo, Karen Ocampo Flores, Michael Rodriguez Gomez, Gregory Raymond Halili, Mark Orozco Justiniani, Julie Lluch, Athena Santos Magcase-Lopez, Racquel De Loyola, Renan Ortiz, Christina Quisumbing Ramilo, Mark Salvatus and Pablo Baen Santos.

Triumph of Philippine Art then traveled to the West Coast and was hosted by the Fisher Museum of Art, University of Southern California, CA, from February 6 to April 13, 2014. The homecoming show at Ayala Museum will run from July 22 to August 31, 2014 at its Third Floor Glass Lane and Multi-purpose Hall.
