Forces At Work catalog ad

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.

Place of Region in the Contemporary was a showcase of four projects at the Vargas in December 2017-January 2018. One of the four projects is still on view at the 3F Sensorium: Texts about artist-curator Raymundo Albano are displayed alongside his poetry and curatorial and graphic design. Visitors are encouraged to spend time to read at this area. Place of Region in the Contemporary was the initial project of the Philippine Contemporary Art Network (PCAN). https://www.pcan.org.ph
