Face to Face: Critic Meets Artist with Cid Reyes @ Lopez Museum

The Lopez Museum and Library presents eminent art critic and scholar Cid Reyes in a lecture, Face to face: Critic meets artist, on May 3, 2014 from 2 to 4 pm.

Reyes, who writes actively on Philippine art, will share his thoughts about Filipino artists based on his book Conversations on Philippine Art (1989). The book chronicles his interviews of prominent Filipino artists including eight National Artists for Visual Arts. The lecture is organized in conjunction with Lopez Museum’s latest exhibition Context: Rod Paras-Perez Art Historian, Critic, and Writer.

From 1994-2004, Reyes wrote numerous reviews and essays for his weekly art column for TODAY. He studied at De La Salle University and the Accademia de Belle Arti in Rome as an Italian government scholar. He also took courses in Art History at the City Lit Institute in London.

Reyes wrote Conversations on Philippine Art, Inspired Creativity: A Decade of Philippine Art Awards, and books on art of National Artists Arturo Luz and Bencab. In 1978, he won the Art Criticism Award of the Art Association of the Philippines. For two consecutive years 2001-2002, he was voted Art Critic of the Year by Art Manila Quarterly. In 2003, he was elevated to Hall of Fame for Art Criticism.

Context commemorates the 80th birth anniversary of Dr. Paras-Perez and highlights his contributions to Philippine art history and criticism. The museum collaborated with his estate to showcase select writings and memorabilia which give insight into the man behind the writing.

Registration fee for the lecture is P120 (students P100). For more information and registration for the lecture, call Tina at 631-2417.

The Lopez Museum and Library is at the ground floor, Benpres Building, Exchange Road corner Meralco Avenue, Pasig City. Museum days and hours are Mondays-Saturdays, 8 am to 5 pm, except holidays.
