Curated by Dr. Patrick Flores, it features Ventura’s most significant works in the over 1,000 square meter ground floor gallery space, making it the most comprehensive display of his drawings, prints, figurines and sculptures in different media such as graphite, lithography, fiber glass, steel, lantern and digital image.
Castrillo exhibit extended
Yuchengco Museum has extended the special exhibition “Eduardo Castrillo @ 50: Moving the Legacy Forward” until February.
The exhibition illustrates Castrillo’s legacy of innovation, scale and creativity through rare sculptural pieces and art jewelry. The 360-
degree virtual reality experiences of Castrillo’s historical monuments at the Samsung Digital Gallery on the museum’s third floor reintroduce the monument maker to younger audiences.
Eduardo Castrillo (1942-2016), the awarded nationalist sculptor, jewelry designer, monument maker and pioneering radical in the visual arts who passed away in May 2016, would have marked last year his golden anniversary as an artist.
Yuchengco Museum is at RCBC Plaza, Makati City. Call 8891234; visit www.yuchengcomuseum.org.
