The Adamson University (AdU) Rotating Exhibits Gallery presents the cultural artifacts collection of Anthony Gedang. Dubbed “Travel, Learn, Conquer: The Gedang Experience,” the show opened on February 7 at the newly-designed gallery.
Representing part of Gedang’s larger collection, the exhibit showcases items gathered from Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand, India, Mexico, Israel and Africa in the course of his and his family’s many travels abroad.
Ritual masks, fertility sculptures, betel nut crackers, woodcarving, and a host of other interesting items will be on display for about five months for students and visitors to appreciate.
Gedang, a 1983 BS Commerce graduate of AdU is a successful businessman and independent film producer whose rich collection of cultural objects is permanently displayed in a mini-museum beside his Quezon City residence.
The Rotating Exhibits gallery is a new addition to the Adamson University Museum and will feature exhibitions that have special significance to the holistic education of AdU students.
Opened simultaneously with the Anthony Gedang exhibit is “The Vincentian-Marian Pilgrimage in France and Italy: A Photo Exhibit.” It features photos of the Adamsonian administrators, faculty and staff while on pilgrimage to sites in France and Italy associated with St. Vincent de Paul, the university’s Patron Saint, on October 24 to November 4, 2013.
The exhibition design and management is by Ayala Museum.
