AdU’s Rotating Exhibits Gallery presents Gedang Collection

The Adamson University Rotating Exhibits Gallery will present the cultural artifacts collection of Mr. Anthony Gedang on February 7 at 5 p.m. at the newly-designed gallery in a show dubbed “Travel, Learn, Conquer: The Gedang Experience.”

The exhibit, a representative part of Gedang’s larger collection, will showcase 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 around five months for students and visitors to see. Mr. Anthony Gedang, a 1983 BS Commerce graduate of Adamson University, 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.

To be opened simultaneously with the Anthony Gedang exhibit is “The Vincentian-Marian Pilgrimage in France and Italy: A Photo Exhibit.” It will present 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, last October 24-November 4, 2013.

The exhibition design and management is by Ayala Museum.
