The UP Vargas Museum through The Working Artists Group (WAG) is accepting volunteers who can assist in a short-term workshop-oriented engagement on basic condition reporting and handling of contemporary works of art.
Tasks include documenting unaccounted-for paintings lodged in the basement of the Vargas Museum as well as clerical work such as file keeping, encoding, archiving, corresponding with artists, and coordinating retrieval and delivery schedules.
Deadline of applicant’s cv and a short letter of intent indicating their background, skills and interest in the arts is on 27 November 2014 and may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org (and copy correspondence to email@example.com) under the reference “WAG workshop.”
*Terms of Engagement: Museum Volunteers will be engaged for a maximum of 20 person days and will be remunerated according to daily wage rate. Days and hours of work: Wednesdays and Fridays, 10:00am-4:00pm.
As part of Holdings, curated by Merv Espina, in Forces at Work happening from 2 December 2014 to 28 January 2015, WAG will facilitate the retrieval of abandoned works occupying storage space at the Vargas Museum. This entails the creation of a collections management assistance provider where WAG positions itself within the organizational structure of the Vargas Museum as a temporary department, enabling its bureaucratic practice to operate.
WAG is being represented by Buen Calubayan as nominated by the group composed of himself, Enzo Camacho and Amy Lien, Donna Miranda, Sandra Palomar and Angelo V. Suárez.
FORCES AT WORK is a 4-exhibit project from the 3rd Curatorial Development Program of UP Vargas Museum and The Japan Foundation, Manila. Please check events page for other details about the four exhibits: https://www.facebook.com/events/1497560897187009/ — at UP Vargas Museum.
