The Introduction to Contemporary Arts

  1. 1. The Contemporary Arts Philippines and its Regions
  2. 2. Objectives • Describe the characteristics of contemporary arts • Identify the subject matter and different styles • Explain how different materials are used in art – making • Make a contemporary artwork
  4. 4. History • First, one needs to be clear about what the term contemporary art has come to mean. It is generally defined as referring to "work created after World War II." As it's used by critics, curators, and teachers, however, it really refers only to work that is considered avant-garde, or cutting-edge. In particular, it means abstract work and the various postmodernist genres, from "Pop art" to "installation" and "performance art."
  5. 5. Malliarium • A true work of art can often speak for itself and releases its true artistic meaning just by looking at it. The Spoliarium, which is often misspelled as ‘Spolarium’ truly exceeds the given definition of art. The Spoliarium, which was painted by Juan Luna, is considered one of the most internationally renowned pieces of modern Filipino art. Luna submitted his painting to the Exposición Nacional de Bellas Artes in 1884 which received a gold medal. Later on the year 1886, it was then sold to the Diputación Provincial de Barcelona for 20,000 pesetas. The Spoliarium, which is one of the Philippines pride, now hangs in the main gallery of the National Museum of the Philippines and is the first painting to greet museum visitors.

  8. 8. Juan Luna • Juan Novicio Luna (October 23, 1857 – December 7, 1899) was a Filipino painter, sculptor and a political activist of the Philippine Revolution during the late 19th century. He became one of the first recognized Philippine artists. • His winning the gold medal in the 1884 Madrid Exposition of Fine Arts, along with the silver win of fellow Filipino painter Félix Resurrección Hidalgo, prompted a celebration which was a major highlight in the memoirs of members of the Propaganda Movement, with the fellow Ilustrados toasting to the two painters' good health and to the brotherhood between Spain and the Philippines.
  9. 9. • Dubbed Malliarium, the collaborative work will span more than 7 meters across the CCP’s Little Theater Lobby. As of production time, the mural’s “digital plate” has taken over one gigabyte of hard disk space to process on a Mac G4 and Pentium 3, with 17 artists working together across varying platforms mostly through networks. • eArt members plan out the Malliarium at the CCP Little Theater Lobby (L-R) Mario Parial, Rosscapili, Heber Bartolome, (top) Nelson Viterbo, Ige Ramos, Fatima Lasay, Benjie Cabangis, (bottom) Ronnie Millevo, Jose Tence Ruiz, George Cabig and Art Suarez.
