STOCK

STOCK
Alfredo Juan and Isabel Aquilizan
Exhibit runs until 10 April 2010
G/F Lobby and West Wing Galleries

The UP Vargas Museum formally opened Stock, a collaborative exhibition of Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan last 23 February 2010, 6pm, at the Ground Floor Lobby and West Wing Galleries.

The practice of Alfredo Juan/Isabel Aquilizan indexes the habit of keeping and investing things with sentiment. It is a disposition shaped by varying desires: as a matter of necessity for a family of five children and as a matter of contingency for artists seeking the intimate contexts of a collective, whether kin or nation, the mass or the global. It is further deepened by their experience as Filipino migrants in Australia and their commissions of installations across the world. In this exhibition, they recollect their art: old drawings, collages, the more recent Mabini art project, and important pieces since 1997 involving identification cards, shoes, toothbrushes, slippers, and even the vestiges of their studio in Los Baños. They also rummage through the storeroom of the Vargas Museum to create an installation of an institution’s remains and surplus: to take stock.

Session Advisory: The Art Workshops of Fernando B. Sena at the Vargas Basement concluded last 2 December. Sessions and registration will resume on 20 January 2018. More than a hundred guests gather at the public reception of Place of Region in the Contemporary on 8 December 2017, Friday. 
UP Vargas Museum opens this first project of the Philippine Contemporary Art Network (PCAN) built through three nodes in a network: Knowledge Production and Circulation; Exhibition and Curatorial Analysis; Public Engagement and Artistic Formation. The project endeavors to activate a network to coordinate a range of interventions in contemporary art in the Philippines and to cast a sharper profile for it on an inter-local and trans-regional scale. It is keen to confront the requirements of research and discourse; curate art and subject the curatorial gesture to critique; and propose modes of catalyzing the public sphere of art and in the process harness the energies of its agents. The project at the UP Vargas Museum will run until 27 January 2018. Public programs for the project will happen next year. The Philippine Contemporary Art Network (PCAN) will open its initial project at the Vargas Museum on 8 December 2017 at 4pm. For more information, visit http://pcan.org.ph or the Facebook event page of the project: Place of Region in the Contemporary DEVOUR will close today at 5pm at the 3F Galleries.
