A Conversation on Fernando Zóbel: Contrapuntos with co-curators, Ditas Samson and Guillermo Paneque
14 Mar 2018 / Wed / 3PM - 5PM
Ben Chan Art Suite, 2F Arts Wing, Areté, Ateneo de Manila University

One of the giants in Philippine art, Fernando Zóbel was respected as an artist, an art patron and a teacher. He founded the Ateneo Art Gallery in 1960 through his gift of over 200 modern Philippine artworks and international fine art prints, and the Museo de Arts Abstracto in Cuenca six years later. Zóbel is a celebrated figure in the local art community who has touched generations of artists and nurtured an appreciation for abstract and modern art.

Fernando Zóbel: Contrapuntos was one of the Collateral Events of the 57th International Art Exhibition in Venice, organized by the Ayala Museum and co-curated by Ditas Samson and Guillermo Paneque. It focused on two of Zobel’s abstraction series, namely the Saeta and the Serie Negra, and presented alongside the sculptures of abstract artist Pablo Serrano. The curators will talk about the curatorial process and design approach that led to a cohesive exhibition.
