Lecture on Life and Works of Carlos "Botong" Francisco & Francisco Coching

The National Museum opened in January 2010 an exhibition titled "Botong Francisco Coching: Telling Modern Time, now on display at the 5th floor of the Museum of the Filipino People, National Museum (old Finance Building), T. Valencia Circle/Finance Road, Rizal Park, Manila.

The exhibition, curated by Dr. Patrick Flores, runs until the end of March 2010 and showcases the works of two masters, National Artist Carlos V. Francisco with his selected paintings, displayed back to back with comics illustrations of Francisco Coching.

As a collateral activity of the exhibition, on March 12 and 19, 2010, at 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., there will be lectures about the two contemporary artists. Alice Guillermo will speak on the first date while Robert Paulino and Solidad Reyes on the second, with Patrick Flores to discuss the curatorial component on both occasions. Both lectures will be conducted at the 4th floor, Tambunting Hall of the Museum of the Filipino People.

We would like to invite your fine arts students and faculty members to participate in both lectures. For confirmation or inquiries, please get in touch with Mr. Mel Lagartija or Ms. Rizza Salterio of the Museum Education Division at telefax no. 5270278. Please see attached file for the poster.

We look forward to seeing you at both lectures. Thank you.
