This exhibition focuses on the convergence between the museum’s milieu and the artist’s sculpture. The inspiration of this project is Saluysoy, Robles’s retrospective held last year, which means “wellspring”. Tagalog at Taga-ilog explores the resonance of the term through sculptures, maquettes, drawings and poetry in the wider discourse of identity and landscape.

Roberto M. A. Robles (b. 1957) graduated from the School of Music and Fine Arts of the University of the East with a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts. In 1995, he completed his Master of Fine Arts sculpture program majoring in stone carving under the tutelage of Prof. Hitoshi Itoh at the University of Tsukuba School of Art and Design. He was appointed Dean of the College of Fine Arts, University of the East in the same year upon returning to the Philippines. He has extensively exhibited locally and abroad in such venues as at the Pinaglabanan Gallery, Galleria Duemila, Tokyo Metropolitan Museum, and Ibaraki Museum of Modern Art and Kitano Museum Art Movement. He received an Asian Artist Fellowship at the 11th Annual Freeman Foundation Vermont Studio Center, USA in 2004. Robles held his 30 year retrospective “Saluysoy” at the Ateneo Art Gallery in 2011.

Tagalog at Taga-ilog will run until 27 April 2012. For more information, please contact Vargas Museum at +632 928-1927 (direct line), +63 981-8500 loc. 4024 (UP trunkline), +63 928-1925 (fax) or send an e-mail to vargasmuseum@gmail.com.

Opening reception of Visualizing Sound at the 3F Galleries - 9 February, 6pm Exhibition runs until 16 March 2019. Visualizing Sound is an exhibition that presents the collaboration between artist Gerardo Tan, musicologist Felicidad A. Prudente, and master weaver Sammy Buhle. The exhibition reflects on the translation of forms through the work "Rendering", a video and audio documentation notated in modern sound symbols, which are then translated into visual images, and in turn interpreted in textile by the ikat method. Complementing this is another work by Tan titled Speaking in Tongue (inspired by an indigenous chant from Kalinga called sogna) that tries to articulate the production of vocal sounds resonating from a singer’s mouth. Thus, the exhibition Visualizing Sound becomes an intersection of modes rooted in tradition and enriched in multidisciplinary contexts. The Vargas Museum Education Guide for the show can be downloaded via link over at our Facebook page.
Vargas Museum Education Guides for our February 2019 exhibitions are now available online. The study guides are designed for discussions and activities for classes in Humanities, Art Studies, Anthropology, Fine Arts, Cultural Studies, History, Political and other Social Sciences. It is encouraged that course tutors/teachers have a pre-visit to the exhibition before the class’s actual visit. The education guides may be reproduced. For pre-visits and tours, please inquire via vargasmuseum@gmail.com. Go to our Facebook profile page for the links!
