Rosa Negra (Black Rose) is a visual commentary on the state of the nation’s art. Although initially associated with the National Artist Award, artists have found a venue to air their concerns: artistic freedom, recognition and awards, criticism and acceptance, artist education and experience, commercialization and relevance of art, integrity and responsibility. These artists seek to contribute to the reinstatement of values and improvement of ethics in contemporary Philippine visual arts. Rosa Negra is both reactive and proactive.
The show opens with a program by the Concerned Artists of the Philippines (CAP) 6:00 pm this coming Monday.
In this regard, may I invite you to join the event or view the exhibition. Thank you very much!
