In line with the national celebration of February as the Arts Month, the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (MCAD) of the De La Salle-College Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) presents a selection of films on several artists’ lives and their corresponding works.
Discover the secret behind the universality and timelessness of Norwegian painter and symbolist Edvard Munch’s creations via five short films entitled “Glimpses of Edvard Munch’s Life,” “1863-1944,” “Faces,” “A Self Portrait,” and “Post Mortem.”
Slated for February 15 and 16, these are brief clips about the revered expressionist’s prolific career which spanned for over 62 years, and produced more than 40,000 astounding works of art.
Learn about the phenomenal success of Margaret Keane’s painting in “Big Eyes,” on February 22 and 23.
