MANG ENTENG & FRIENDS: Through the Years
23 MAR - 4 APR 2014
VENUE | Salcedo Private View, Unit 105-B, Three Salcedo Place, 121 Tordesillas Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City
As a satellite event of Art in the Park on Sunday 23 March 2014, The Friends of Manansala Foundation, Inc. in association with Salcedo Auctions and Salcedo Private View is mounting an exhibition titled Mang Enteng and Friends: Through the Years. The show, which will consist of memorabilia, original artworks and never-before seen photographs from the collections of Foundation trustees Maritess Pineda, Cora Lopa, and Mita Rufino, the artist’s granddaughter Ronna Manansala, and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) will run until Friday, 4 April 2014. It will chart the work of the Foundation in upholding and honoring the legacy of the National Artist from its establishment after Manansala’s demise in 1981, to the exhibitions and fundraising activities that the group has been organizing over the past 33 years. Its most recent activity, done in partnership with the family of the artist, has been the highly successful production and sale of a limited edition set of giclee prints featuring the murals that Manansala executed for the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) in 1962. Proceeds from this sale have been earmarked to assist in the preservation of these artworks.
Other projects of the Foundation include documenting the known works of Manansala through a catalogue raisonne, publishing an expanded version of the book on the artist chronicling his life and art, and establishing a scholarship fund for postgraduate students in the areas of art history and Philippine art studies with a focus on the generation of Manansala and his fellow postwar modernists.
Mang Enteng and Friends: Through the Years will be on show at Salcedo Private View, adjacent to Salcedo Auctions, Unit 105-B, Ground Level, Three Salcedo Place, 121 Tordesillas Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City.
