UE Buklod Sining Pays Tribute to Philippine Cinema

For its third opening exhibit this July, NCCA Gallery presents PeliKULAY 2 featuring the works of Buklod Sining Organization, a group composed of UE Students from the College of Fine Arts, Architecture and Design, this July 20, 2011 at 5pm. The exhibit, in conjunction with the Buklod Sining Alumni, is in preparation for the group’s 25th anniversary art exposition on October 5, 2014.

The Art Show gives homage to the immense contributions of different Filipino actors from different generations. It showcases the students, alumni and guest artists’ opus in painting, photography and digital arts. The tribute to local cinema was spearheaded by Buklod Alumni Society Chairman Ronwell Jason L. Bacani as a number one fan of Philippine Cinema from the golden age to the modern times, from silent movies to talkies, from black and white to color, from mainstream to indie, from Paraluman to Angel Locsin and from silver screen to canvas.

Through this, young Buklod Sining artists is in au fait with the contributions of talented Filipino actors and the value of cinema as art. It is also an avenue to connect with our parents’ experiences in watching films of Fernando Poe Jr., the comedy King Dolphy, Tito, Vic and Joey, Nora Aunor and Vilma Santos in major cinema houses in Metro Manila like the Clover Theatre, Luneta Cinema and Odeon. Some of the student exhibitors were guided by their parents in choosing their subject matter. Meanwhile, Buklod Sining advisers headed by Prof. Edgardo Garcia and Prof. Ellen Villanueva led them in choosing the applicable style, composition and medium according to their talents and abilities.

During the launch, Buklod members shall open our eyes into the unparallel world of performance art. Richard Soriano Legaspi’s award winning experimental and narrative films shall also have an open screening.

PeliKULAY would not be possible without the help of National Commission for Culture and the Arts, University of the East - College of Fine Arts, Architecture and Design, Buklod Alumni Society,, Agimat: Sining at Kulturang Pinoy, Red Room Productions, ArtePinas Inc. and Bright Orb web media.
