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
