The Lopez Museum and Library teams up with the Ateneo Art Gallery to present two lecture series that deep dive into Philippine art forms and their iterations in contemporary practice. The lecture series is aimed at those interested in exploring the different movements that helped shaped Philippine culture today: from imagined worlds in ancient maps, to the introduction of film and Technicolor to Philippine theatres.

HIGHLIGHTS: Understanding Philippine Art Forms

Highlights is a lecture series focused on introducing different genres of Philippine art. Branching out from wall bound paintings, this lecture series also tackles film and theatre. Learn more about the media that permeates into our contemporary world.
