The George Segal Gallery presents an exhibition of groundbreaking developments in contemporary Philippine Art that were inspired by the country’s socio-economic and political struggles during the Martial Law period leading up to the historic People Power of 1986 and, thereafter, resulting in vibrant, unique, and robust art at the turn of the 21st century.

The exhibition will present Filipino and Filipino-American artwork from the Martial Law period (1972 - 1986) to the successful one-of-a-kind bloodless people’s rebellion recognized worldwide as People Power of 1986, and into the changing imagery of a free and confident art leading into the 21st century. The visual arts played a vital role in all these periods through powerful expressions of fine art.

The arts of these periods in effect document a country with a long history of national identity issues stemming from centuries of foreign colonial rule, the challenges of democratic principles, and relevancy to the present democratic and globalized world. (Read more about the exhibition here.)
