Filipino Identity in the Arts

Sold out

This book nurtures the reader’s appreciation for artistic traditions of the Philippines. It also gives emphasis to individual agency and the uniqueness of each artist in his or her particular milieu. Art form, process, and material or intangible cultural properties are explored vis-a-vis parameters of ethnicity and social relations. The book grounds readers in the Western art canon while situating Philippine art in its precolonial roots and contemporary emergence.
