Arts Management students from DLS-CSB produce a self-image journey through
photography in an exhibition entitled "EMBRACE"
From March 27 to April 3, 2019, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde’s School of Design and Arts (DLS-CSB SDA) Arts Management Program will bep presenting EMBRACE at the 9/F Hallway of the School of Design and Arts Campus.
EMBRACE is a photography exhibition focusing on self-image, self-empowerment, and self-esteem. The exhibition is produced and curated by a group of fourth year AB Arts Management students under the supervision of Mr. Armando “Tuxqs” Rutaquio Jr.
EMBRACE seeks to be a reminder of empathy towards oneself and others. The exhibit aims to portraya person’s uniqueness through the language of photography. EMBRACE is focused on
embracing differences and the ability to accept who you are. The exhibit is narrated through the firstand third person point of view revolving around the major theme of self-image, divided into three chapters, ultimately: Context, Response, and Reflection. These chapters identify with the
relationship of mind and body; a powerful connection that is important but seldom recognized.
