In cooperation with
Galleria Duemila

The University of the Philippines Vargas Museum will open the exhibition Traces on 23 April, 4pm at the 3/F South Wing Gallery of the Museum.

Traces features old and recent works of visual artist Imelda Cajipe Endaya on women, war, and peace. Cajipe Endaya’s series of lithographs, chine colle and monoprints converse with archival materials and artworks from the Vargas Museum collection by Filipina artists such as Pacita Asuncion-Roxas, Carmen Bernabe, Erlinda Vargas, and Nena Saguil. Images of peace are interspersed with images of military weapons and toys that seek to reject the permanence of war. These include the Philippine experience in the Second World War, the wars in Kosovo, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Text, textile, and video installations complement the works.

Cajipe Endaya’s works deal with themes of cultural identity, gender, race, nation, migration, displacement, and globalization from the point of view of a Filipina visual artist. She was awarded the Centennial Honors for the Arts by the Republic of the Philippines in 1999. She has gained recognition in the Asia-Pacific contemporary art world for the distinctly Filipino and female statements in her art, as well as her cultural leadership in the advocacy of women. The artist currently works in New York and Manila.

Traces will run until 8 August 2010.
