Philippine Nostalgia, a three-man exhibition, will open at the Philippine Center on October 10, 2017. The exhibit explores the fascinating aspects of Philippine life by looking back on the sentimental and iconic Filipino ways of life.
Curated by UP Fine Arts Professor Rubén DF Defeo, Philippine Nostalgia features the new works of three Philippine-based artists: Carlito Amalla, Gari Apolonio and Denes Dasco. They are graduates of the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts in Diliman, Quezon City.
The exhibit is supported by the De La Salle- College of Saint Benilde School of Design and Arts in Manila. The exhibition will run from October 10 to 20, 2017. Reception will be held on October 13, 6 p.m. with Consul General Theresa De Vega as Guest of Honor.
Amalla and Apolonio will give an Artist Talk to the Filipino-American community and students on October 12, from 2 to 4 p.m. They envision to provide the new generation of Filipino-Americans to get a better understanding and appreciation of their culture. They hope to connect the audience to indigenous dances/costumes and traditional komiks. The Talk will be followed by an open forum and art demonstrations.
