Art in a Time of Turmoil
8 February to 27 May 2017
Based on the AAG collection of social realist artworks, Ligalig, a Filipino word for “threat,” encompasses the themes that continue to be relevant to this day—threat to life and freedom brought about by abuse of power, poverty, economic and social inequalities, and environmental degradation. The varied range of artworks in this exhibition—from paintings, prints, and drawings to mixed media and video works—underscore the role of art as a critique of the prevailing social and political order
This exhibition will feature works by Martino Abellana, Virgilio Aviado, Benedicto Cabrera, Imelda Cajipe-Endaya, Orlando Castillo, Charlie Co, Kiri Dalena, Antipas Delotavo, Alfredo Esquillo, Edgar Talusan Fernandez, Anna Fer, Marciano Galang, Emmanuel Garibay, Ofelia Gelvezon-Tequi, Renato Habulan, Neil Manalo, Alfredo Manrique, Manny Montelibano, J. Elizalde Navarro, Galo Ocampo, Onib Olmedo, Jose Tence Ruiz, Pablo Baens Santos and Lazaro Soriano.
