This launching exhibit of National Artist Cesar Legaspi’s birth centenary will be pegged on the artist’s public art projects and state commissions including those from the collections of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, the National Museum of the Philippines, the Development Academy of the Philippines, and the kilometer markers done for the Bataan Death March. With some works no longer being extant such as Legaspi’s contribution to the Kulay Anyo ng Lahi mural project this exhibition will solicit the interventions of younger generations of artists to possibly effect a conversation between those who were caught up in the polarities of affinities between creative agents who either chose to distantiate themselves, or were effectively positioned beyond the radar of art spaces activated by the state during martial law.
