“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).

@upvargasmuseum and @metmuseummanila open two new shows on 21 April, Saturday, 4:00 p.m at the ground floor galleries of the MET. "Fascination with Filipiniana: The Vargas Museum Collection" and "In the Wake of War and the Modern: Manila, 1941 to 1961" feature the comprehensive collection of the Jorge B. Vargas Museum and Filipiniana Research Center of the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City. Drawing reference from the collection’s roots, "Fascination with Filipiniana: The Vargas Museum Collection” examines the artworks and archives that comprise the Vargas Museum collection, and Jorge B. Vargas’ place in the history of Philippine art and culture. Fascination, a translation of his compound fondly called Kawilihan, not only alludes to Vargas’ instinct, habit and passion for collecting, but also includes the word “nation,” a discourse relevant to him at a time when he was both a government official and a collector. "In the Wake of War and the Modern: Manila, 1941 to 1961" explores how the collections of the Vargas Museum and the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas interconnect, and the historical context that surrounds their respective formations. Framed by the years when Vargas was appointed Mayor of Manila, until the time when he became Regent of the University of the Philippines, the period also marks the emergence of both the modern and the so-called “Mabini Art” from Manila before, during, and after the Pacific War. "Fascination with Filipiniana: The Vargas Museum Collection" and "In the Wake of War and the Modern: Manila, 1941 to 1961" will run until July 21, 2018 For more information, please contact the Metropolitan Museum of Manila at 708.7829 or send an email to info@metmuseum.ph.
