Asia Society Philippines, together with Ateneo Art Gallery and the Ayala Museum, present: WHEN CONTEMPORARY ART BECAME GLOBAL (1986 to 2017), a lecture series on contemporary art, held every Tuesday and Wednesday at the Ayala Museum from March 7 to 29, 2017.

 

WHEN CONTEMPORARY ART BECAME GLOBAL (1986 to 2017) focuses on the way contemporary art has veered away from the dominance of New York and Western Europe after key events and exhibitions in the late 80's. There will be eight (8) lectures which will look at global artists, including South East Asia, and tackle issues such as the creation of art for public spaces, the growing split between Biennale Art and Auction Art spaces, and the role of art in today's society.

 

The lecturer for this series, Professor Tony Godfrey is a well-respected teacher, writer, and curator in the world of contemporary art since 1978. He has taught in several universities including Yale, NYU, and Oxford, and headed the Master's Program in Contemporary Art at Sotheby's Institute London. Presently based in Manila, Godfrey teaches part-time while working as a writer and curator with artists from South East Asia and the rest of the world. Professor Godfrey has also headlined other lecture series with Ateneo Art Gallery to much success.

 

For any questions and concerns, you may contact John Balaguer of Ayala Museum (balaguer.jb@ayalafoundation.org) or Tricia Raya of the Ateneo Art Gallery (praya@ateneo.edu or 426 6488).

The Philippine production will be lead by internationally acclaimed opera singer, Noel Azcona who plays con man Gianni Schicchi who pretends to be the dying Bouso Donati in order to reverse the wealthy man’s will in favor of his family.
