UP Vargas Museum and The Japan Foundation, Manila presented the exhibition Forces at Work last December 2014- January 2015. The full exhibition catalog is now online for public use. To view the catalog, click the image above or go to this link.

Forces at Work comprises four curatorial projects from selected participants of the Curatorial Development Program, a workshop initiated by Vargas Museum and the local office of The Japan Foundation every two years since 2009. The four chosen curators were Con Cabrera, Merv Espina, Ricky Francisco and Mayumi Hirano. The program included curatorial workshops by Patrick Flores of Vargas Museum, Mami Kataoka of the Mori Art Museum and Yukie Kamiya of the Hiroshima Museum of Contemporary Art.

Together with their counterparts in Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, the four curators were invited to a short-term residency in Japan, visiting cultural institutions, museums, galleries, and independent artist-run spaces in Yokohama, Nagoya, Kanazawa, Hiroshima, Fukuoka and Tokyo. This project is part of a larger program of Japan Foundation’s Run & Learn: New Curatorial Constellations with the next generation of curators from the Asian region.

28 February (Wed) 
2:30pm - Guided tour of the Living Architecture Exhibition 
3:00pm - FROM NATURE TO ARCHITECTURE: Gaudi's Sagrada Familia with Ar. Choie Funk

Free and open to the public, limited slots. Pre-register via vargasmuseum@gmail.com. 
The story of Gaudi's life speaks of the mystery of all exceptional talent with which every human being could be endowed. Coupling this notion with that particular era during which he was born, Gaudi's whole work was an expression of a period. The Basílica de la Sagrada Família, as with his other works, spans realities of the 19th century straight through the 21st, as we expect its completion in 2026. The 2018 Summer Art Workshops by Fernando B. Sena resume on 10 April. Registration is ongoing. The workshops are for kids (8+), teens, and adults.

Schedule: Every Tuesday 
9-11:30am (Beginner)
2:30-5pm (Advanced)

Each level is a total of eight sessions.

For details, please contact Mr. Sena at 376-2196 or 0918-951-9989 or the Vargas (Glenn/Linda) at 928-1927 during office hours. #drawing #painting #stilllife #portraiture #landscape #figures #Repost @heyhaselyn:

21 February 2018, Wednesday at 10am | 3F Galleries, Vargas Museum
Pre-registration encouraged, limited seats: vargasmuseum@gmail.com
Free and open to the public

Vargas Museum invites everyone to the activities for the Beyond Myself exhibition currently on view at the 3F Galleries. Organized by the Vargas, Scalabrini Migration Center Philippines, and UP Department of Political Science, the activities happen at 10am on Wednesday, 21 February 2018.

Nathalie Dagmang initiates the discussion of Beyond Myself and her art practice by walking the participants through the exhibition. Dagmang created several works in 2017 for the first Beyond Myself exhibition held at Goldsmiths, University of London.  As an active agent for the workshops held in London through the Curating Development project, she was able to share materials, reinterpret archives, and create art through interactions with the migrant workers and organizations.

The second part is a conversation with Dr. Anju Mary Paul, author of Multinational Maids: Stepwise Migration in a Global Labour Market. “Multinational" mobility is not restricted to the global elite. Drawing upon surveys with more than 1,000 Filipino and Indonesian migrant domestic workers in Singapore and Hong Kong, and in-depth interviews with well over 200 of these workers in Singapore, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Canada, and the United States, Dr. Paul documents how some migrant domestic workers are agentically adopting stepwise international labor migration as part of long-term mobility projects for themselves and their families. She lays out the building blocks that have led to the emergence of this global phenomenon, highlighting similar patterns of stepwise migration among other migrant groups, including migrant nurses, IT professionals, foreign academics, and international students.
