The Metropolitan Museum of Manila welcomes you to ART INSPIRES, a series of evolving conversations about contemporary art. It aims to enrich the public's understanding and appreciation of not only the museum's collection and exhibitions, but also of art as a whole. Together with artists, curators, scholars and professors, writers, and art enthusiasts, the program gathers us in this space of shared wonder and engagement. It invites us to reflect on our art experiences, to dialogue with each other, and to open up our senses to the ideas of the world.
How does the artist depict reality? For thousands of years, humans have been creating images of what's around us and artists have been expressing their own unique visions of what is in many different ways. Join the conversation with artist and photographer Denise Weldon and MET Education Officer Alec Abarro. We will dive into artworks depicting the Philippine skies, landscapes, flora, and more.
