Artists’ Talk
Prof. Gerry Lucena and Dr. Gil Jacinto

The Lobby
UP Vargas Museum (UPVM)

In line with two ongoing photography exhibitions, the UP Vargas Museum will hold an artists’ talk on 25 November (Tuesday), 2:30 PM at the Lobby. This is a collateral event for the exhibits UP In Focus @ 100 at the 3/F Landing Gallery and Coalescence…Science & Art at the Edge Gallery of the UPVM.

Featured speakers are UP professors Gerry Lucena and Dr. Gil Jacinto. Prof. Lucena of the Department of Art Studies is also photography practitioner. He offers new ways of viewing familiar as well as unfamiliar objects, places and structures found inside UP Diliman Campus. His most recent photography exhibition is fittingly titled UP In Focus @ 100 as a tribute to the UP’s Centenary celebrations. Prof. Lucena will discuss the scope of his photography practice from the point of view of a photography teacher and art scholar. Dr. Gil Jacinto, a chemical oceanographer from the Marine Science Institute will discuss how he first applied photography to his profession which later became his hobby and passion. The exhibition Coalescence… Science & Art attests to how Dr. Jacinto blurred the distinction between the two seemingly opposing disciplines of art and science.

Admission to the artists’ talk is free. For more details, please contact the UP Vargas Museum at 928-1927 (Direct line), 981-8500 local 4024 (UP Trunkline), 928-1925 (Fax) or (0929) 8567909 (Mobile). You can also send your inquiries via e-mail to
