Ateneo Art Gallery invites you to the opening of the exhibition #LUZ@90 Curated by Ambeth R. Ocampo, on 16 November 2016, Wednesday at 6pm. Featuring recent and early works, the exhibition is a celebration of the 90th birth anniversary of Arturo R. Luz, National Artist for Visual Arts.

Luz was named National Artist for Visual Arts in 1997. Beginning his career with figurative works, he then explored other modes of abstraction and stylized figuration in paintings, sculptures, prints and collages. His works like ‘Bagong Taon’ and ‘City’ (both from the AAG collection) marked a critical development in the history of Philippine modern art. Works in various media, including photography, maintain his aesthetic of linear and geometrical forms and remain true to his visual clarity.

Selected works featured in the exhibition will form part of the Ambeth R. Ocampo bequest to the Ateneo de Manila University.

“My life is to paint. Because I keep working, I could give any show any day of the week.” (Luz, Philippine Tatler, 14 March 2015)
