The Ateneo Art Gallery moves to its new home in Areté. The Upper Ground Floor Galleries – Mr. & Mrs. Chung Te Gallery, Mr. & Mrs. Ching Tan Gallery, and Ernesto and Susan Tanmantiong Gallery – are venues dedicated for the AAG Permanent Collection. Its inaugural exhibition focuses on the growth of the AAG Collection through the generosity of various donors. This exhibit also aims to highlight the role of philanthropy which not only sustained the growth of the AAG but also made possible the realization of the newly-constructed Areté.

From Fernando Zobel, whose donation to AdMU led to the founding of the Ateneo Art Gallery in 1960, to succeeding donations from Ateneo alumni and visual artists, the AAG Collection has grown into what is now considered an important collection of post-war Philippine modern art, Social Realist art from the 1970s and 1980s, and contemporary works. The exhibit will be divided into decades with each section featuring a list of names of all donors and a selection of works from each period. During its one-year run, works within each section will be rotated to ensure that all donors are represented and their donations exhibited.
