Contemporary art lecture series starts March 7 at Ayala Museum | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022



A lecture series dubbed “When Contemporary Art Became Global (1986 to 2017)” will be held every Tuesday and Wednesday, starting March 7 to 29, at the Ayala Museum.


The lecture series—sponsored by Asia Society Philippines, the Ateneo Art Gallery and Ayala Museum—will focus on how key events and exhibitions in the late 1980s influenced contemporary art to veer away from the dominance of America and Western Europe.


Composed of eight lectures, the series will discuss global artists, including those from Southeast Asia; tackle issues such as the creation of art for public spaces; the split between Biennale Art and Auction Art spaces; and the role of art in today’s society.


The lecturer for the series, Tony Godfrey, is a respected professor, writer, and art curator since 1978. He has taught in Yale, New York University, and Oxford, and headed the Master’s Program in Contemporary Art at Sotheby’s Institute London.


Presently based in Manila, Godfrey teaches part-time while working as a writer and curator with artists worldwide.  He has also delivered various lecture series at the Ateneo Art Gallery.
