Contemporary Artists Join Yuchengco Museum Exhibit on Manton de Manila

  Contemporary Artists Join Yuchengco Museum Exhibit on Manton de Manila

As part of a special exhibit on the manton de Manila called Draped in Silk: The Journey of the Manton de Manila, the Yuchengco has invited 19 artists and creative thinkers from a range of disciplines to create a new piece inspired by the manton. The artworks on view range from paintings, fine prints, and photographs to couture and installations. Among the participating artists are (from left to right): Photographer Wig Tsymans, couturier Steve De Leon, sculptor and jewelry designer Michelline Syjuco, printmaker Ambie Abaño, and architect Dan Lichauco.

Draped in Silk is the Yuchengco Museum’s major exhibit for 2009, and is on view until December 29. The exhibit explores the Manila-Acapulco galleon trade that introduced the manton to Spain, showcases contemporary works inspired by the manton, and looks into ­similar motifs found in Philippine embroidery.
