IA&A Design Studio presents this complete examination of the Archival Collection of Luis Lorenzana. This unusual and previously undisclosed selection of Lorenzana’s work comes from a time early in his artistic evolution, when one can sense his emotions rising roughly to the surface of his paintings and drawings in raw and unrestrained bursts of impassioned force. Lorenzana: Archival Collection accompanies the exhibition of selected works at Leon Gallery in Manila. The exhibition launched on February 1.

The 225-page book is authored by Michelle Yun, Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at Asia Society Museum. Contributing essays are by Ryu Niimi, director of the Oita Prefectural Art Museum and one of Japan’s leading curators and critics of contemporary art; Associate Professor and former Chair of the Department of History, Ateneo de Manila University, Ambeth Ocampo; and independent curator and writer Lisa Nakpil.
