“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.

Ties of History exhibition is on its sixth week at UP Vargas Museum. Here is an image of Singaporean artist Amanda Heng's Walking the Stool (1999-2000) installed at the 3F South Wing Gallery of the museum. In 1997, Heng was awarded a studio in Telak Kurau by the National Arts Council (NAC). She was the only woman artist given a studio by the NAC. When Heng confronted the NAC about this, the NAC told her that there were no other women artists. Around the same time, performance art was proscribed in Singapore following what was deemed an indecent performance by Josef Ng in which the artist snipped his pubic hair in public. This prompted the government to desist from funding other performance projects. Walking the Stool is Heng’s response to these events. As a performative gesture, Heng got a stool from her studio, attached to it a chain, and walked the stool in her studio’s neighborhood. Photo: Lea Marie Diño
