In the 1950s and 60s, progressive artists and art collectors found a home in 
Lyd Arguilla's "biggest little room," the Philippine Art Gallery. In his first 
lecture at the Ateneo de Manila University since his retirement, one of the 
country's preeminent art critics recalls one of the most colorful chapters in 
Philippine art history as he traces the beginnings of modernism in the country. 
Animating his appreciation of the works featured in the Gallery's 
ongoing "Refiguring Modern Philippine Art" exhibition with first hand accounts, 
this is a rare opportunity to rediscover an era - an unforgettable ArtSpeak 
experience not be missed.

Prof. Emmanuel Torres was formerly Curator (1960-2001) and Senior Curator
(2001-2002) of the Ateneo Art Gallery. Apart from several award-winning books 
on art, he has published three volumes of his poems.

This is the tenth edition of ArtSpeak, the Ateneo Art Gallery's monthly series 
of talks by significant art practitioners. As part of the lecture program for 
the "Zero-In: Private Art, Public Lives" consortium project of the Ateneo Art 
Gallery, Ayala Museum, and the Lopez Memorial Museum, this event is co-
