Artists in Conversation at Lopez Museum on July 16

Featured in About Face are four artists whose portraits are renderings of some of the works in the collection of the Lopez Memorial Museum and Library. Vermont Coronel, Renan Ortiz, Louie Talents and Alvin Zafra lent their old works and worked on new ones as well to create non-traditional portraitures with the use of new and unconventional media. Their works present images that ask the viewers to re-examine their idea of portraiture in light of today's celebrity culture, identity thefts, avatars, etc. On July 16, Saturday, 2-4 pm, these artists will discuss their processes and inspirations, aided by questions raised by one another and the audience.

 About Face explores the idea that the face represents the persona with which one confronts the world and how penetrable these public facades can be, the featured artists will use and incorporate portraits from the museum and the library archives of Lopez Museum. These include works by Juan Luna, Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo, Macario Vitalis, Fabian de la Rosa, Ang Kiukok, Vicente Manansala, Juvenal Sanso, Fernando Amorsolo, Benedicto Cabrera, Fernando Zobel , and the extensive Rizaliana holdings in light of the 150th birth commemoration of Dr. Jose Rizal. It runs until August 27.

 The Lopez Memorial Museum is at the ground floor, Benpres Building, Exchange Road corner Meralco Avenue, Pasig City. Museum days and hours are Mondays-Saturdays, 8am-5pm, except Sundays and holidays. Call 6312417 or email for details.
