Art, Cellar Gallery, Exhibit, South Wing Gallery, West Wing Gallery (Edge)


28 October to 2 December 2010

The University of the Philippines Jorge B. Vargas Museum in cooperation with Green Papaya Art Projects and 24HR Art Australia opens Immemorial on 28 October 2010, Thursday at 4PM. Installation pieces, video and sculpture will be housed at the West Wing, Basement and the Third Floor South Wing galleries of the Vargas.

Immemorial brings together Filipino and Australian artists in dialogues that explore intersections between cultures and understanding of identity. Striving to identify convergences, the works in the exhibition explore journeys, displacements, and ancestral histories across time and geographical divides. Identity is framed as contingent yet rests on shared strands of knowing.

Exhibit runs until 02 December 2010. This event receives support from the Australian Council for the Arts and the Australian Embassy Manila.
