Placing the Transition, A Talk by Carlos Celdran

Placing the Transition 
A Talk by Carlos Celdran with an Introduction to Teodulo Protomartir by Uro dela Cruz
July 1, 2010, Thursday @ 6-8pm

Teodulo Protomartir was there in 1946 when the Americans gave the Philippines its independence. On July 4, he witnessed the birth of the Philippine Republic. For the first time, the Philippine flag flew alone and free. The Filipino crowd cheering by, planes flying overhead, floats lining the parade...a celebration it was. And Protomartir caught it all on still camera.

Almost sixty-fours years to the day, on July 1 will be a talk by Carlos Celdran, celebrated tour guide and authority on Manila's history. Entitled Placing The Transition, the talk bridges 1946 and 2010 with photos of the places Protomartir photographed as they are today. Uro dela Cruz will also be giving an introduction to Protomartir.

Beyond historical evidence, the significance of Protomartir's images is meaningful. Protomartir hands to the Filipino people cultural treasures that should remain part of Filipino identity and memory. Sixty-four years later, we celebrate Protomartir. We celebrate Manila. We celebrate Philippine Independence.

The talk will be on July 1, Thursday, 6-8pm at Silverlens Gallery. This event is free of charge. RSVP call 8160044 or email

Being There 1946: The Legacy of Teodulo Protomartir is on display until July 3,2010.

All Set for a Bigger & Better ManiART 10 

After the astounding success of last year’s MANILART 09, the Bonafide Art Galleries Organization (BAGO), teams up once more with the National Commission on Culture and Arts (NCCA) and the Department of Tourism (DOT) to showcase the finest in Philippine visual arts via the bigger and better MANILART 10, the 2nd Philippine International Art Fair.

Slated for a four-day public run at the SMX Convention Center at the Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City from July 30 until August 1, 2010, MANILART 10 will kick-off with an exclusive “by invitation-only” preview on July 29th.

MANILART 10 promises to dazzle art lovers and enthusiasts with the best and broadest examples of Philippine contemporary art. Over 1,000 paintings and sculptures by 400 of the country’s brightest talents will be on display and over 60 of the finest art galleries participating, thus making the fair the biggest ever in Philippine history.

“In the first year of MANILART, it took us three long months to fill up the 40 exhibition booths planned,” says BAGO president Jonathan Sy. “This year 70 of the booths snapped up within two days by some of the most prestigious galleries nationwide. We post a 40% increase in the participation with half of that number getting double-sized booths.”

The BAGO also expresses its gratitude to the management of the SMX Convention Center as the space more than doubled and more importantly for agreeing to lease Hall 4 at a subsidized rate owing to their support to Filipino art and artists.

Exciting activities such as painting demonstrations, on-the-spot competitions, “how-to” lectures and many more are lined-up. That is why the BAGO is very pleased that the NCCA Committee on Art Galleries headed by Lyn Yusi initiated the approval of a larger grant for MANILART 10.

Asia's rise to power in the 21st century continues even as it grapples with poverty, social inequity, conflict, a changing climate, and institutions that are being altered by information technology.

The pictures in this exhibit capture the immense diversity of issues confronting Asia. They are among the best single pictures and photo stories in the portfolios submitted by students as a final requirement to earn the Diploma in Photojournalism (DPJ).

Main Atrium, Mall of Asia

In cooperation with SM Supermalls, Epson Philippines will showcase the Epson PRO, and their vision of climate change in a photo exhibit at the Atrium of the SM Mall of Asia on June 7, 2010 at 3pm.

Epson Philippines will also launch the Toner & Ink cartridge collection and recycling campaign, and expand it to include partners, distributors, retailers and customers. The expansion of this program, which Epson Philippines has already implemented internally for the past 3 years, is expected to create a much greater impact on its environmental goals.

Through these efforts, Epson enjoins everyone to make their choice to change-to make environmental protection not just a by-word, but a way of life.
