The UP Vargas Museum in cooperation with the Drawing Room Gallery opens the exhibition Drawing by Jose Legaspi on 8 May 2012, Tuesday, 4pm, at the 3F South Wing of the Vargas.

Untitled (detail). 2012. Pastel on paper. 228.6 x 114.3 cm.

Jose Legaspi presents a suite of small drawings and two large portraits in his continuing reflection on how it is to intuit the structure of feeling for the self as revealed in a particular state or stance and amid the hectic details of visions of the world.

Legaspi (b. 1959) was in the graduate program of the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts from 1985 to1986. His training, however, was in the sciences, earning degrees in biology and zoology from the University of Santo Tomas.

Legaspi has exhibited extensively both locally and abroad in museums and galleries such as Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan (2009), Espai d’Art Contemporani de Castello, Spain (2000), Cultural Center of the Philippines (1992), Art Lab, Manila (1990); and represented in such platforms as Scope Basel (2010), Istanbul Biennale (2003), The Japan Foundation Forum (2002), Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Brisbane, Australia (2002), to name a few.

Drawing will run until 16 June 2012.

The symposium will be held on 15 December from 10am to 5pm and includes public events, lectures, instructions, panel meditations alongside sonic scores in the open exchange of the project. The symposium centers on the changing conditions for artists practising today in Manila and surrounding provinces and those working outside of the Philippines. Dr. Elizabeth A. Povinelli is an esteemed anthropologist and the Franz Boas Professor of Anthropology in Columbia University, New York. Povinelli describes her practice: “My writing has focused on developing a critical theory of late liberalism that would support an anthropology of the otherwise. Informed primarily by the traditions of American pragmatism and continental immanent theory and grounded in the circulation of values, materialities, and socialities. This potential theory has unfolded primarily from within a sustained relationship with Indigenous colleagues in north Australia and across five books, numerous essays, and four films with the Karrabing Film Collective. Geontologies: A Requiem to Late Liberalism was the 2017 recipient of the Lionel Trilling Book Award. Karrabing films were awarded the 2015 Visible Award and the 2015 Cinema Nova Award Best Short Fiction Film, Melbourne International Film Festival and have shown internationally including in the Berlinale Forum Expanded, Sydney Biennale; MIFF, the Tate Modern, documenta-14, and the Contour Biennale.” Her publications include: Geontologies: A Requiem to Late Liberalism; Economies of Abandonment: Social Belonging and Endurance in Late Liberalism; The Empire of Love: Toward a Theory of Intimacy, Genealogy, and Carnality, A Public Planet Book, among others.
