The Metropolitan Museum of Manila mourns the passing of our founding director and National Artist, Arturo Luz. An acclaimed painter, sculptor, and printmaker, he is known for his geometric abstracts and linear compositions in which his more than sixty-year career made an invaluable achievement in Philippine modernism and design. 

Luz served as the museum’s director from 1976 to 1986 and established set principles in museum work informed by his unique minimalist aesthetic. Just like his art, his curatorial work espoused a sharp and polished finish, mounting a total of 108 exhibitions in ten years. Luz lended a hand in keenly rearranging the pieces according to his design sense, preferring clean white spaces with little ornamentation and discrete labels.
