The Embassy of Israel and the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts stage Common Ground: A Ceramic Art Collaboration of Israel and the Philippines on March 23-29.
Happening at UP Diliman CFA, Common Ground features the medium of clay to bind relationships and establish cultural ties between Israel and the Philippines.
This unique collaboration brings Israeli ceramic and interdisciplinary artist Roy Maayan to the Philippines.
Maayan is bringing to his Master Class lecture-demonstration a mold of a popular Israeli symbol, Matka (a racquet for their national beach sport Matkot). It will be used as a base for combining Israeli and Philippine popular symbols or texts such as iconic product brands, national newspaper banners, and works of National Artist Larry Alcala, Pupung characters created by Filipino cartoonist Tonton Young, and other popular objects such as bakya, palayok, pamaypay, and more.
The artist talk, open studios, and exhibition events are open to the public for free. Go to UPCFA Ceramic Studio’s Facebook page or call (02) 981-8500 local 3977 for more information.
