The Metropolitan Museum of Manila maintains permanent and temporary exhibitions of pre-colonial, modern and contemporary Philippine art. It aims to make art accessible to all via its multi-disciplinary approach in content and design, its interactive stations and educational programs.
Also featured is the era of Spanish colonization that produced religious images and objects by the country’s most illustrious artists, some who garnered international recognition at the turn of the 20th century in Europe such as painters Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo and Juan Luna.
An expansive main gallery showcases international art and thematically curated temporary exhibitions. The second floor galleries will soon exhibit a permanent collection of paintings, sculptures and prints representing turn of the 21st century and the best in contemporary Philippine art.
Featured in this post is the Met Open 2014, a temporary benefit exhibition, which ran from September 20-October 4, 2014.
