2003) As the only museum in the country dedicated to the
collection, display and interpretation of modern Philippine art, the Ateneo
Art Gallery is poised to engage with the richness and diversity of
the art of our time.
As a university art museum, it seeks to animate cultural life on campus and serve as an art resource for students as well as the general public.
The Gallery seeks to promote the excellence of contemporary Philippine visual expression by providing a forum where various perspectives can meet. It does this unmindful of the canons, pantheons or histories that commonly implicate and complicate the relationships between and among artists and their works.
