REVERB | Mark Justiniani

Justiniani 2016 FB banner

UP Vargas Museum, in cooperation with The Drawing Room (Contemporary Art), opens Mark Justiniani’s exhibition titled Reverb on April 13, 2016, Wednesday, 6pm at the 1F Galleries of the Museum.

Reverb explores the different ways of looking, seeing and viewing through Justiniani’s monumental installations that have illusory notions of the abyss. The exhibit explores different realities by giving its viewers multi-layered artworks whose ever-changing forms challenge visual and spatial grounding. Thus the exhibit invites us to question what is in front of us, and how the manipulation of specific media justifies this perception.

Reverb runs until May 6.

Mark Justiniani (b. 1966) is a visual artist who has participated in numerous exhibitions here and abroad (Singapore, Denmark, USA, Australia, Malaysia, Japan), including the Asia Pacific Triennial in Brisbane, Australia in 1996. He was a member of ABAY, Grupong Salingpusa and Sanggawa Art Collective. He was conferred distinctions such as the Grand Prize of the 7th Metrobank National Painting Competition in 1990, the Thirteen Artist Grant in 1994, the Malihaw Awardee as the Most Outstanding Victorianon in the Arts in 1997, and the Philippine Representative to the ASEAN Art Awards in 1999.

Opening reception of Visualizing Sound at the 3F Galleries - 9 February, 6pm Exhibition runs until 16 March 2019. Visualizing Sound is an exhibition that presents the collaboration between artist Gerardo Tan, musicologist Felicidad A. Prudente, and master weaver Sammy Buhle. The exhibition reflects on the translation of forms through the work "Rendering", a video and audio documentation notated in modern sound symbols, which are then translated into visual images, and in turn interpreted in textile by the ikat method. Complementing this is another work by Tan titled Speaking in Tongue (inspired by an indigenous chant from Kalinga called sogna) that tries to articulate the production of vocal sounds resonating from a singer’s mouth. Thus, the exhibition Visualizing Sound becomes an intersection of modes rooted in tradition and enriched in multidisciplinary contexts. The Vargas Museum Education Guide for the show can be downloaded via link over at our Facebook page.
Vargas Museum Education Guides for our February 2019 exhibitions are now available online. The study guides are designed for discussions and activities for classes in Humanities, Art Studies, Anthropology, Fine Arts, Cultural Studies, History, Political and other Social Sciences. It is encouraged that course tutors/teachers have a pre-visit to the exhibition before the class’s actual visit. The education guides may be reproduced. For pre-visits and tours, please inquire via vargasmuseum@gmail.com. Go to our Facebook profile page for the links!
