"22/24 - Dimensions of Hope" - Camera Club of the Philippines Presents Photo Exhibit at NYU, Feb. 21-May 15

February 15, 2008
N-281, 2007-08

Celebrating its 80th anniversary, the Camera Club of the Philippines will present an exhibition entitled “22/24-Dimensions of Hope” at New York University’s King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center (53 Washington Square South), opening on Thursday, February 21, at 7 p.m. Opening remarks will be by Edward Sullivan, NYU dean for the humanities, and Jo Labanyi, director of the King Juan Carlos Center; with special guest of honor Philippine Consul General Cecille Rebong. The opening reception is free and open to the public.

“22/24-Dimensions of Hope” will be display through May 15, 2008. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m to 9 p.m. For further information, call 212.998.3650 or visit www.nyu.edu/kjc.

The exhibition features 44 photographs, grouped in 22 pairs, suggesting the hopes and dream of the island nation as seen through the lens of the Camera Club of the Philippines. The paired photographs can be seen as formal studies in light, color, and composition; as tropes for the social condition; or as visual essays on the Philippines’ hybridized culture with its Spanish, American, and Asian-Pacific inflection. The exhibition is curated by Florina H. Capistrano-Baker from the Ayala Museum.

The Camera Club of the Philippines, the oldest in that country, has continued uninterrupted (except for a brief hiatus during World War II) since 1928. Descendants of the original eight founders are club members today. The club has previously mounted a major photographic exhibition at the Museum of the Filipino People and a large multi-media event at the Ayala Museum. This is its first exhibition in New York City.

“22/24-Dimensions of Hope” is part of a series of special events at the King Juan Carlos Center on the Philippines, including a symposium and film screenings, to take place in April.
