“TWOFOLD: Dear Artist | Double Consciousness” by Lyra Garcellano

TWOFOLD 2016 Garcellano

4 February to 15 March 2016
3F Galleries
UP Vargas Museum

UP Vargas Museum, in cooperation with Finale Art File, opens Lyra Garcellano’s solo exhibition titled TWOFOLD: Dear Artist | Double Consciousness on February 4, Thursday, 4pm at the 3F Galleries.

TWOFOLDpresents Garcellano’s two projects Dear Artist and Double Consciousness, exploring the relationships and intersections of cultural institutions, artistic production, and the art market. Both foreground the intricacies of valuation by examining the different networks, either public or private, with which an artist interacts. Garcellano opens a platform of critique for these legitimizing institutions while at the same time shows how an artist, through his or her engagement with the system, actually becomes a part of the very operational structure he or she critically mediates and through which artistic identity circulates. Dear Artist and Double Consciousness come together as one, revealing how artists situate and present themselves in the art world, the very institution that constitutes their worth.

TWOFOLD: Dear Artist | Double Consciousness runs until March 15.

Lyra Garcellano received her Bachelor of Arts, Interdisciplinary Studies at the Ateneo de Manila University (1994) and Bachelor of Fine Arts, Major in Studio Arts, University of the Philippines, Diliman (2000). She is currently a graduate student at the University of the Philippines under the Visual Criticism and Art Theory program of the Department of Art Studies. She has been conferred the 13 Artists grant of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (2006). She was also part of different Artist in Residence Programs in Cemeti Art Foundation, Jogjakarta, Indonesia through the UNESCO Aschberg Bursaries for Artists (2002); Location One, Soho, New York City through the Asian Cultural Council (2010); BMW Young Asian Artists, Singapore Tyler Print Institute (2011); Gwanju Cultural Foundation (2012); and International Artists Residency, National Art Studio, Changdong, Seoul (2013).
