    Project Island Hopping – Reversing Imperialism: Lander Exhibition Dates: 13 October-16 November 2018 UP Vargas Museum Artist Talk: 13 October 2018, Saturday at 4:00pm Reception: 13 October at 6:00pm Curated by Dar-Kuen Wu in collaboration with Patrick Flores Participating Artists: Jui-Chung Yao, Hui-Yu Su, Hsien-Yu Cheng, Cheng-Ta Yu, Wan-Ling Huang, Mu-Chi Hsieh, Santiago Bose, Diokno Pasilan, Mark Salvatus, Jose Ma Tanierla, Renz Lee The project refers to the reversing route of the island hopping strategy adopted by the US army in World War II. The first exhibition of the project, Vessel, was curated by Patrick D. Flores, Curator of the Jorge B. Vargas Museum and Filipiniana Research Center, and took place at VT Artsalon in March, 2017. In October, 2018, Dar-Kuen Wu, Curator of VT Artsalon collaborates with Flores to curate Lander presented at the Vargas Museum in Manila. The exchange exhibition of Taiwanese and Filipino contemporary art features six Taiwanese artists, including Jui-Chung Yao, Hui-Yu Su, Hsien-Yu Cheng, Cheng-Ta Yu, Wan-Ling Huang, Mu-Chi Hsieh, and five Filipino artists, who are Santiago Bose, Diokno Pasilan, Mark Salvatus, Jo Tanierla, and Renz Lee. The exhibition also represents a possibility to respond to current social collective anxiety in both the Taiwanese and Filipino contemporary art communities. Naturally, it is a response to the larger scheme of Project Island Hopping as well: an exploration of the relationship between invasion and being invaded, the global and the local, the active and the passive, as well as a latent Asian consciousness and position. Through the dialogue between these Taiwanese and Filipino artists, this exhibition is both a response to the exhibition, Vessel, as well as a revelation of the grand scheme of Project Island Hopping, which is to redefine historical and geographical regions and reconstruct an alternative topology and identity.
