REDISCOVERING ROMEO TABUENA : THE LATER WORK


Rediscovering Romeo Tabuena : The Later Work
Selected recent works
by a groundbreaking Mexico-based
Filipino modernist

In celebration of National Heritage Month, Ayala Museum, the Filipino Heritage Festival, Inc., and the Philippine Embassy in Mexico present Rediscovering Romeo Tabuena: The Later Work. The exhibition opens at the Ground Floor Gallery of Ayala Museum on 23 May 2009.

The exhibition features selected recent works from several local private collections, including recent serigraphs done in Mexico to be shown expressly in this exhibition. Tabuena lives in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico, where he has been recognized by the Mexican government as a prominent painter.

Romeo Tabuena was born in Iloilo City in 1921. He was one of the members of the Neorealist group in the postwar Philippine art scene. In 1955, he left the Philippines and eventually settled in Mexico. Although he remains a Filipino citizen, he has never returned to this country since he left more than half a century ago.

As one of the groundbreaking modernists in the late 1940s to 1950s, Tabuena transformed pictorial rural scenes into mist-covered landscapes that resemble Chinese traditional paintings.

His early paintings in the 1950s to the more recent work done after 2000 has enriched Philippine landscape genre paintings had contributed significantly to the character of Asian modernism.

Rediscovering Romeo Tabuena: The Later Work runs until 19 July 2009.

Additional support for the exhibition is provided by Globe Platinum and Japan Airlines.

Filipino Heritage Month was born out of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s Proclamation No. 439 on 11 August 2003, “declaring the month of May of every year as National Heritage Month. The event is in recognition of the need to create among the people a consciousness, respect, and pride for the legacies of Filipino cultural history, and love of county.

Ayala Museum is located at the corner of Makati Avenue and De la Rosa Street, Greenbelt Park, Makati City. For details and inquiries on this exhibition, please call 757-7117 to 21 local 28 or 29.
