Lecture on Trends and Innovation in Philippine Contemporary Art

Jeannie Javelosa, curator of the Yuchengco Museum, will give a public lecture on “Trends and Innovation in Philippine Contemporary Art”.

Free with museum admission, the talk is second under the museum's Culture and Development program, a lecture series exploring local culture, art, design, and heritage to help promote Filipino identity.
In relation to the ongoing exhibit Somewhat Different: Contemporary Design and the Power of Convention, the talk is an overview of trends in Philippine contemporary art - from the Modernist tradition of the late 1950s to the present day - focusing on the innovations of our Filipino artists in technique, style, and material as they broke away from the previous generation.

Jeannie Javelosa is a writer and visual artist: she is an awarded printmaker and editor of the landmark book Art Philippines. She was an active art critic in the late 1980s and 1990s, with a weekly column in a daily newspaper and published articles in art journals and magazines in Southeast Asia and Australia.

On the same day prior to the talk, Writer's Block Philippines (WBP) is offering "Writing the Trends Piece: A Workshop on Feature Writing about Design and Innovation." A workshop fee of P2,000 applies.
