Arts & Culture
Cultural heritage is an expression of the soul of a people. Manifested through the likes of arts, including craft, fine art, music, performance, folklore and dance, it is a reflection of who we are and what we believe in. The Lopez Group supports arts and culture with a vision of strengthening national pride and consciousness toward nation building.
Fostering Arts & Culture, The Lopez Way.
Artist Talk with Alvin Yapan
Lopez Museum and Library brings you an afternoon with filmmaker Alvin Yapan as he talks about his art practice and his short film Ulang Palay this February 28, Saturday, 2015, 2 – 4PM. In addition, he will give us a preview of his new film, the first ten minutes of An Kubo sa Kawayanan (The House by the Bamboo Grove). Ulang Palay is a short film created by Yapan that speaks of the rice cartels in the Philippines. An almost meditative video of seemingly endless rain of rice, the bounty is looked at in relation to rice growing in the Philippines and its relation to the power structures in place. Ulang Palay is part of the first major exhibition of the Lopez Museum and Library.
