MULA SA MGA ANINONG GUMAGALAW featuring behind-the-scenes photographs by Cesar Hernando, collected from the films he has worked in as production designer.Spanning three decades of iconic filmsby even more iconic Filipino directors that have defined Philippine cinema,the pictures hope to thread a particular progression from the so-called second “Golden Age” of Filipino film to the rise of independent cinema, and to chronicle perspectives from behind the camera work of directors such as Ishmael Bernal, Mike de Leon, Maryo J. de Los Reyes,Raymond Red and Lav Diaz. The exhibit,co-curated with and organized by Erwin Romulo, is witness to the experience and contribution of Hernando, and will also be a fond tribute to the late Alexis Tioseco, who originally conceived of the idea to exhibit these photographs.

On August 5

CCP DAKDAKAN: KULO An open forum on KULÔ is an exhibition of artworks by selected alumni artists of the University of Santo Tomas. The artworks, old and new,contribute to the discourses of the penand the sword, education and revolution—topics that have implicated Filipinothinkers and artists, who are consciousof the historical occasion and dialoguebetween Jose Rizal’s 150th birthday and the country’s oldest university’s 400th year celebration as an educational institution. One of the works, Poleteismo by Mideo Cruz, in Kulo has sparked a controversy and elicited protest from individuals and groups, calling for the removal of the work and even closure of the exhibit. Two constitutional rights have come into collision through this issue. On one hand is of course the artist’s freedom of expression, against which stands the complaint that the artwork is deemed to discriminate against religious belief. In recognition of such valid concerns, the CCP has organized this open forum Educators, representatives of religious organizations, art practitioner and experts on culture and law will be invited to set the points of analysis and study with the aim of promoting exchange, and moreimportantly, the commitment for tolerance in both areas of art and religious practice. Dakdakan is an educational program of the CCP Visual Arts and Museo Division. The forum is free and open to the public, within the recommended capacity of the venue. Confirmation and seat reservation are encouraged.

Venue: Bulwagang Juan Luna (CCP Main Gallery)
Time: 2-5PM Free Admission

Until August 21

MANHID first solo exhibition by RonaldJeresano, delves into that fragile space between holding back and losing control of one’s emotion: one that he defines as numbness. For Jeresano,numbness could be the fleeting prelude to depression or breakdown, but it is still aprecious and reflective moment where a sense of beauty, strength and order could nonetheless be grasped and understood. Jeresano’s works are distinguished by theplay of solidity and fluidity in figuration,morerecently expressed through the rendition of bubbles which takethe form of various image and text to propel theartist’s social commentary.Among his many awards and recognitions,Jeresano is a Grand Prize winner of boththe Metrobank MADE in 2008 and theArtPetron competition in 2007 and 2008.Thisexhibition is presented in cooperatiowith Nineveh Artspace of Sta Cruz,Laguna.
