“Yellow Ambiguities” at Ateneo Art Gallery
August 18, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - January 5, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
18 August 2019 – 5 January 2020
Guest Curators: Jason Dy, SJ and Carlomar Daoana
Following art historian John Cage’s investigation on color – its nature, purpose, and histories – the exhibit explores the complexity of the color yellow in the Philippine context. It engages the modern art collection of AAG in dialogue with pre-colonial artefacts; Hispanic colonial religious artefacts and Marian images; contemporary naturally-dyed woven fabrics; works of the Conservative and Modernist schools represented by Fernando Amorsolo and Galo Ocampo, respectively; and the works of contemporary artists among them Pacita Abad, David Medalla with Adam Nankervis, Roberto Chabet and King Kong Art Projects, Jose Tence Ruiz, Judy Sibayan, Edgar Talusan Fernandez, Norberto Roldan, Elmer Borlongan, Manny Montelibano, MM Yu, Ling Quisumbing, Wawi Navarroza, Lyra Garcellano, Mars Bugaoan, KoloWn, Leslie de Chavez and Steve Tirona.
