Divination: Brenda Fajardo Retells History
Exhibit runs until 10 January 2010
Lobby and West Wing Galleries
Fajardo, an artist, curator, cultural worker, educator, and Professor Emerita of the Department, is well known for her early works in prints and the tarot card-inspired paintings. She started her career in the performing arts where she was initiated to dance, body movement, and theater production. At present she is active in the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA). Line and movement stirred her fascination with the pictorial characteristics of prints. She trained under Manuel Rodriguez, Sr upon returning to the Philippines after studying abroad. Abstract lines juxtaposed with human figures typify her early prints like. In later years, she focused on her women and tarot card series to reference folk culture, local history, and the concerns of women within the social sphere. Fajardo is a pioneering woman artist in Philippine contemporary art and is highly regarded for her broad sympathies in the field of culture.
The exhibit runs until January 10, 2010. The Museum is open on Tuesdays to Sundays, 9 am to 4 pm.
