Pananaw is a Philippine contemporary art journal, launched in 1996 and publicly released in 1997 as an initiative of artists and cultural workers.
Pananaw’s fifth volume is intended as a tactical contribution to public clamor for institutional critique. It includes essays on the Metropolitan Museum of Manila, Ayala Museum, the Cultural Center of the Philippines, the Asia-Pacific Triennale, as well as a piece on Philippine performance art and an attempt at self-critique through a commissioned piece looking back on Pananaw's own critical practice. Among this volume's contributors are Pearlie Rose Baluyut, Marian Pastor Roces, Patrick Flores, Roberto Paulino, and Eileen Legaspi-Ramirez. Pananaw 5's guest editor is former Singapore Art Museum assistant curator and Lopez Memorial Museum curatorial consultant, Joselina Cruz. Design and production supervision by Norberto Roldan.
