Lights, Camera, ARTWORK! In WTB, our graphic designer is the most posted with everything art. When he learned about this art exhibit that is being hosted by Cinematheque Baguio, we just knew that we were going to check it out and we’re glad we did on its opening day.
The exhibit pays tribute to Philippine Cinema from 19960s to 1990s, ergo the portraits of the respected actors like Dolphy, Vilma Santos, and Susan Roces – to name a few.
Legit vintage film equipment were also displayed which were sponsored by Mr. Art Tibaldo who also happens to own a museum dedicated to equipment used in mass media production. We’ve gone there when we were still in college and boy, were we amazed!
The best part? WE WERE ALLOWED TO TOUCH AND PLAY WITH THEM.
On another note, here are our top picks from the gallery:
1. A intricate self-portrait of the ever so awesome Kidlat Tahimik.
2. A portrait of Gloria Romero in charcoal by Rochejad.
3. A portrait of Asiong Salonga by Rommel Pidazo.
Everything was pretty awesome that we could not justify its awesomeness in our photos. You have to see them in person and physically feel the inspiration radiating from each artwork. We don’t know what we just said there but you get the drift. HAHA
Wood sculptures with tiny woven things were also displayed.
Poetry reading, too! Aww
And of course, we wouldn’t want to miss the chance to have a photo with THE Kidlat Tahimik. The art exhibit is up until the 30th of January, so drop by Cinematheque Baguio if you find yourself in the City of Pines and tell us what you think!
