Alvin Yapan (photo credit: Pipoy John)Lopez Museum and Library brings you an afternoon with filmmaker Alvin Yapan as he talks about his art practice and his short film Ulang Palay this February 28, 2015 (Saturday) from 2 to 4 p.m. In addition, he will give a preview of his new film, the first ten minutes of An Kubo sa Kawayanan (The House by the Bamboo Grove).
Ulang Palay is a short film created by Yapan that speaks of the rice cartels in the Philippines. An almost meditative video of seemingly endless rain of rice, the bounty is looked at in relation to rice growing in the Philippines and its relation to the power structures in place. Ulang Palay is part of “Propaganda”, the first major exhibition of the Lopez Museum and Library for 2015.
The lecture complements the ongoing exhibit which fleshes out the idea of myth-making and its ability to inspire change in society. The exhibit integrates the library's collection of World War II propaganda materials and election-related archival materials and features contemporary artists Nunelucio Alvarado, Santiago Bose, Joey Cobcobo, Don Salubayba and Yapan. The exhibit runs until May 30, 2015.
Registration fee for the lecture is Php 135 per person (Php 115 for students and members). The fee includes admission and a guided tour of the exhibitions. Gourmet Farms Inc. will serve freshly brewed coffee during the lecture.
The Lopez Memorial Museum is at the ground floor, Benpres Building Exchange Road corner Meralco Avenue, Pasig City. Museum days and hours are Mondays-Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 5p.m., except holidays. For information and registration, call Thea or Kinna at 631-2417.

I’m quite excited by it because if we’re able to seize them and ride the wave, we have a golden opportunity to leapfrog and build a power industry that’s truly for the 21st century. That power industry must not only address inclusive economic development but exponential technological advances and climate change as well.
