The MET continues its 40th anniversary celebration with exhibitions and activities that further the museum’s cohesive direction and strengthened position as the home of contemporary art.
Last November, the MET formally opened three exhibits, collectively known as FORTY, which capture the museum’s 40-year journey, societal contributions and its subsequent ventures.
The MET Collection and New Acquisitions: the highlight of FORTY, consists of more than 100 works by Filipino artists from the modern and contemporary period. Spread out across the MET’s Tall Galleries and Open Gallery, the collection goes beyond the meaning of individual works and examines how their collective significance emerges as the museum’s reflections of the evolving art of today.
The MET and BSP Print Collections: drawn from the complementary print collections of the MET and the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, this exhibit at the BSP Gallery, collocates the works of Filipino and foreign artists in exploring the form and content of modern printmaking locally and in Western art.
The Metropolitan Museum of Manila is open from Monday until Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
