What's The Big Idea? Mid-century modern art and the Philippine Art Gallery
MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Art Gallery (PAG) was instrumental in nurturing HR Ocampo, Vicente Manansala, Fernando Zobel, Ang Kiukok, Malang, Jose Joya, and the modern art movement that followed World War II. (LOOK: Here's what Philippine modern art looked like after World War II)
In August, Leon Gallery organized a special exhibit of works that passed through PAG, some that went on auction on September 9, some borrowed from private collectors. It was a unique tribute to PAG and its founder and guiding force, Lyd Arguilla.
Coco Alcuaz spoke to Leon Gallery owner Jaime Ponce de Leon and exhibit co-curator Lisa Nakpil for Rappler's "What's the Big Idea?" series. – Rappler.com
