Doble Mirada: Madrid-Manila

At the turn of the century, the Philippines is presented to the world in two cities
 
In July 2015, Filipinas Heritage Library collaborated with the Toronto-based independent researcher, Francisco G. Villanueva, in organizing the mini exhibition entitled Felix Laureano: First Filipino Photographer at the Ayala Museum. The Panay-born photographer had successfully set up his own photo studio in Barcelona and was likely friends with the propagandista who fought for reforms in Spain in the late nineteenth century.In 1895, Laureano published Recuerdos de Filipinas, a photo-album of Philippine scenes accompanied by short descriptive essays. Recuerdos de Filipinas was displayed at the Exposición Regional de Filipinas in Manila in the same year.

Filipinas Heritage Library, Partners launch "Revolutionary"

On May 20, Saturday, Filipinas Heritage Library, Bahay Nakpil-Bautista Foundation, Inc., and the Estate of Nick Joaquin will launch REVOLUTIONARY, an exhibition and program held at the Ayala Museum in celebration of the centenary of the National Artist for Literature, Nick Joaquin, and the sesquicentennial of the musician and Katipunero, Julio Nakpil.

Featuring the compositions of Nakpil as well as Joaquin’s non-fiction works, the multi-sensory exhibition will attempt to arrange a conversation between the two artists on History and the Revolution. It will also try to illustrate the Manila where both Joaquin and Nakpil were born, and where they lived at an important historical turn – the end of Spanish rule and advent of American colonization.

In Nakpil’s time, Manila was called the “Reina de los perfumes en Asia,” having had perfume makers that imported scents such as ilang-ilang and lavender to Europe. Nakpil even honored the ilang-ilang with a composition. Contemporary scent creator Oscar Mejia of Oscar Mejia Artisan Fragrances will contribute scents that invoke both old Manila and the Revolution. Meanwhile, World War II had destroyed the Manila that Joaquin had begun to write about in the 1930s, and whose history he traced in books such as Manila, My Manila, Almanac for Manileños, and his many journalistic works.

The Rodallie S. Mosende Story: A Photography Exhibit by Rick Rocamora

Exhibition duration: April 28 to May 11 | Free Admission
2F Ayala Museum, Makati City

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

“Dito po sa amin sa Quiapo, halos lahat ng kabataan dito, mga naliligaw ng landas. Ayaw ko po matulad sa kanila, gusto ko po maiba. Na-appreciate ko po na napakahirap ng dinaranas namin, kaya gusto ko po makatapos ng pag-aaral.” (In our community here in Quiapo, nearly all young people have lost their way. I don’t want to be like them. I want to be different. I know that we have a hard life, which is why my goal is to get an education.)
– Rodallie S. Mosende
