ArtSpeak, the Ateneo Art Gallery's monthly series of talks by significant art 
practitioners, ends its 2002 program with critic and independent curator Marian 
Pastor Roces. The event is co-sponsored by the Ateneo Library of Women's 
Writings (ALIWW) and is scheduled on Thursday, 5 December 2002, 4:30 p.m. at 
the university art museum’s Main Gallery.

Ms. Pastor Roces's participation in ArtSpeak focuses attention on the career of 
one of very few Asians to enjoy an international practice in the fields of 
criticism and curatorship. Widely recognized for her theoretical writings on 
art and culture, her work has appeared in some of the world's most respected 
academic publications and art journals. 

Some of Ms. Roces's more recent projects in the Philippines include the Asia 
Society travelling exhibition "Sheer Realities: Clothing and Power in 
Nineteenth-Century Philippines" at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila, and the 
essay "Luna and Hidalgo: Vexed Modernity," which appears in the "Zero-In: 
Private Art, Public Lives" tri-museum exhibition catalogue. Her work in the 
country also revolves around her leadership of TAO Inc., a corporation 
specializing in museum and exhibition projects, cultural assets mapping and 
data-basing, public art consultancy and cultural planning. 

Admission to ArtSpeak is free and open to the public. Advanced booking is 
recommended, as seats are limited. For more information, please contact Yolly
