The exhibition Attitude of the Mind ran from 26 September to 3 December 2017 at the CCP’s Bulwagang Juan Luna (Main Gallery). In partnership with the University of the Philippines’ Center for Ethnomusicology, the exhibition was one of many activities included in the MACEDA 100 program that celebrated the birth centennial of National Artist for Music Jose Maceda (1917-2004).
The exhibit catalog of Attitude of the Mind was finished in 2018 and is now available for digital download in the CCP website. Accompanying the rich text of the publication are nine audio tracks which were either based on actual pieces by Maceda or inspired by his musical practice.
