pangatawanan final invyt

The UP Jorge B. Vargas Museum opened Pangatawanan Mo Nah! last 5 November 2009. The exhibit was graced by Mae Paner herself, also known as Juana Change, with guests of honor, Sen. Francis Pangilinan, Ms. Cheche Lazaro, Bro. Armin Luistro, and Ms. Gilda Cordero-Fernando.

The exhibit features Mae Paner, performer and social critic behind Juana Change. The character is the creation of a pool of writers. A cross between “Wanna Change” and “Wa’Na Change” (No More Change), she is a You-Tube sensation, best known for exposing the many issues of the country in satirical form. Curated by Marian Pastor Roces, Pangatawanan Mo Nah! features paintings, photographs, sculptures and installations by a roster of acclaimed Filipino visual artists interpreting Mae Paner posed in the nude. Featured artists include Kiri Dalena, Brenda Fajardo, Kawayan de Guia, Nap Jamir, Julie Lluch, Jim Paredes, Wig Tysmans, among others.

Unlike the vulnerable Mae Paner, Juana Change’s attack is upfront, hence the naked poses. She is an extreme figure, “completely acted, completely put on, but completely truthful”. In line with this project, Juana Change has committed to herself and to the public to opt for a healthier lifestyle.

Pangatawanan Mo Nah! will be on view at the Vargas Museum until 19 November 2009. For more information, please contact the Museum at numbers (+632) 928-19-27 (direct line), (+632) 981-85-00 loc. 4024, 9+632) 928-19-25 (telefax) or send an e-mail to vargasmuseum@gmail.com.
