Tanaw: Perspectives on the bangko sentral ng Pilipinas Painting collection

Title: Tanaw: Perspectives on the bangko sentral ng Pilipinas Painting collection
Author: Jaime Laya, etc.
Synopsis: Tanaw transcends the traditional role of the art publication as catalogue and singleminded historical narrative. It views the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Painting Collection not simply as a cache of precious objects belonging to an institution, but, more importantly, as an invaluable social resource signifyimg the richness, diversity and sophistication of Philippine culture. In keeping with the mission and vision of the BSP to deliver “a high quality of life for all Filipions,” the book forsters national pride inasmuch as it serves as a catalust for interpersonal and cross-cultural engagement in an increasingly global environment.
Attuned to the openness and responsiveness of the times, and in order to reflect the complex realities that the collection and its audience must navigate today, Tanaw Proposes to advance a more dynamic, forward-looking agenda of critical discourse. In keeping with the many layers of meaning of the Filipino term tanaw – not only as “view”, but also as “act” and “way of seeing” – the book embraces a multiplicity of perspectives, foregrounding issues of diversity and representation, while at the same time reflecting on notions of ownership, and the relativity of value systems.
