"Ang gaganda (How beautiful these are)," exclaimed Cutural Center of the Philippines (CCP) President Michelle Nikki Junia at the opening of the year-round exhibit of experimental and abstract works done by outstanding Filipino artists at the National Museum of the Philippines last Tuesday, November 21.

Michelle Nikki was reacting to the stimulating creations of National Artists for Visual Arts Arturo Luz, Vicente Manansala, Ang Kiukok, Jose Joya, Cesar Legaspi, Federico Aguilar Alcuaz, National Artist for Sculpture Napoleon Abueva, among other noted and exceptional visual artists who were influential in the contemporary art movement in the country specificaly during the 70s and 80s.

Billed as "Selection from the 21st Century Art Museum (21AM) Collection," the exhibition is a collaboration between the NMP and CCP that aims to promote the collection to a wider audience.

The show is divided into two sections, namely "Possibilities of Luminance" which is anchored on the concept of brightness or luminance and "Man and Nature" which explores the relationship between man and his environment.

"Filipinos must be inspired to live harmoniously with these art works," said Nikki.

The exhibit is on view for free to the public from November 16, 2023 to November 2024 at the National Museum of Fine Arts located along Padre Burgos Avenue, Rizal Park, Ermita, Manila which is open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Tuesday to Sunday.
