  3. My children, Christopher and Catherine, took lessons with Mr. Fernando Sena. Their lessons with him yielded fantastic results! They are now college students taking up Fine Arts major in Advertising Design at the College of the Holy Spirit in Mendiola. They have been getting very high grades, many of them flat 1s in their major subjects dealing with painting. Thank you very much, Mr. Sena, for your generosity in sharing your knowledge and talent in the arts.

Opening reception: 13 Oct (Friday) at 4pm

1F Galleries

Described as “social sculpture,” the project dwells on, magnifies, and renders the gesture of protest looming, urgent, and lively in current time and present political life. Conceived by collaborators Tomas Vu and Rirkrit Tiravanija, it has been organized in Colombia, the United States, and Spain. It consists of found images on newsprint which are pasted directly onto the walls of the site and interacting with graffiti text with which it shares pictorial space. Inflected by the charged term “gringo” that reels off the title when it is read, the exhibition evokes the history of foreign interventions and the resistances against them worldwide. According to Vu and Tiravanija, “the provocation inherent in Green Go Home is positioned against the subtle underlying subtext of U.S. interventions, and colonialist attitudes, towards its neighbors in Latin American from Mexico southwards: an antagonism that has cost many lives and much strife. In the imagery itself, the presence of each character-from films to music to personalities of resistance-reveals itself to the viewer as addressing the condition of the graffiti text. The grid holds up the statement and reinforces the layers of interpretation, readings, and misunderstandings. Green Go Homeis meant to be a wall of resisters, and of resistance.” This year, Green Go Home goes to UP Vargas Museum. Through collaborations with contemporary Filipino artists, images of recent protest actions in the Philippines will be drawn on the walls of the Vargas as the exhibition progresses. The exhibit seeks to review our notions of history by contributing to a specific history of protest through interactions with the audience. The Vargas develops a timeline of protests to be accompanied by discussions as an integral part of the exhibition. Mid-month opening at the 1F Galleries: "Green Go Home" project by Tomas Vu and Rirkrit Tiravanija with Buen Abrigo, Mike Adrao, Renz Lee, Gabby Nazareno, Archie Oclos, Iggy Rodriguez and Jo Tanierla on 13 October, Friday at 6pm. Exhibition will run until 18 November.
