AAG in Review: Bellarmine Hall (1960-1967), Print and Drawing Room (1997-2005)

Wednesday, 08 Feb 2017 to Saturday, 20 May 2017

As we prepare to transfer to a new home at the Arete, we take this opportunity to look back to our history when the AAG was housed in two different spaces: first, the Bellarmine Hall (from 1960 to 1967) and then the Ground Floor of the Rizal Library (current building, from 1967 to 2009). The distinct qualities of these two spaces impacted on the directions of AAGprograms and the memories of those who frequented its spaces.

This “review” is a re-construction of the Bellarmine Hall exhibition, as how Zobel wanted visitors to engage with art of a new visual language. Another section recreates the Print and Drawing Room where Emmanuel Torres, former AAG Curator (1960 to 2002), taught art history and art appreciation to generations of Ateneo students.

AAG in Review will be up from the 8 February to 20 May 2017.
