May 31 – June 18, 2013

The UP Vargas Museum and the Center for Art, New Ventures and Sustainable Development (CANVAS) invite everyone to the opening of Looking for Juan: Revolution on 31 May, Friday, 4:00 PM. This year marks the fifth year of the Looking for Juan Outdoor Banner Project – CANVAS’s annual project designed to explore Filipino identity. Dozens of the country’s artists have been invited to participate and interpret the theme, “REVOLUTION”, as a tribute to Andres Bonifacio on his 150th birth year anniversary.

The original artworks will be showcased at the Lobby and West Wing Gallery of the museum. And as before, the images will be printed onto tarpaulin banners, which will then be installed around the magnificent, tree-lined 2.2km Academic Oval of the University of the Philippines. After the exhibition, the tarpaulin banners will be recycled into tote bags to support CANVAS’ projects promoting Filipino art and culture.
