Let them photograph the art says historian Ambeth Ocampo

WHEN members of the public want to see artworks by National Artists Fernando Amorsolo or Benedicto “BenCab” Cabrera or Jose Joya, they have to go to a museum or art gallery to do so. But these spaces have only a limited number of the masters’ works — most of their works are in private hands, […] The post Let them photograph the art says historian Ambeth Ocampo appeared first on BusinessWorld......»»

Why collectors should let go, according to Ambeth

How do collectors, especially those of priceless art, let go? The more accurate question is---can they, do they ever? In fact, many don't; they merely allow death or penury to decide, whichever comes first. That's for priceless art. (When it comes to priceless bags, in my neck of the woods, I've seen some girl friends who find their bag collection more irresistible than men. But that's another story.) It would be interesting to know the answer. Therefore, the morning (as in 10 on a Sunday!) talk of Inquirer columnist and cool historian Ambeth Ocampo on art collectors---their responsibility and legacy---was too irresistible to pass up. This was on the last day of the much-tal...Keep on reading: Why collectors should let go, according to Ambeth.....»»

Ambeth Ocampo on Carmen Guerrero Nakpil

CARMEN GUERRERO CRUZ NAKPIL (all caps) was the name on the printed invitations that commanded attendance in some very remarkable dinners.   Then, as now, Club Filipino food is unremarkable, but the conversation that flowed naturally from the eclectic mix of guests she chose with care were generous helpings of breaking news, gossip and history, much of it unfortunately off the record or unprintable.   As the youngest and least important guest, I was relegated to the far end of the table, content to watch, listen and learn. Ms. Nakpil, elegant as her writing, was the North Star in the constellation, well dressed, with not a strand of hair out of place.   ...Keep on reading: Ambeth Ocampo on Carmen Guerrero Nakpil.....»»

Bayan Muna: Duterte ‘endangering’ lives with his ‘red-baiting’

  The "red-baiting" being made by President Rodrigo Duterte "gravely endangers" the lives and safety of members of progressive groups and their leaders, Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Zarate warned on Tuesday.
