The Banquet
UP Vargas Museum opens J Pacena II’s solo exhibit titled The Banquet: Subject Matter I of III on June 8, Wednesday, 4pm at the 1F Galleries of the Museum.

“Subject Matter” is an on-going research and artistic project that focuses on three themes: An Observation on the Current Art System and the Philippine Art Market, The Catalogue of Artists from year 2000-2015, and the Study of Space, Materials and Technique. Together, these reflect Pacena’s fascination with the work and practice of artists of different persuasions and how they come together to sketch out the landscape Philippine Contemporary Art.

The Banquet: Subject Matter I of III is the first installment, an attempt to initiate a dialogue and critical discourse about the subject among the audience. The show runs until July 2 with support from Blanc Gallery.

Vargas Conversations on Visualizing Sound Exhibition with Gerardo Tan, Dr. Felicidad A. Prudente, Sammy Buhle and Dr. Norma A. Respicio 14 March 2019, Thursday, 2:30 pm 1F Galleries UP Vargas Museum presents a conversation between Gerardo Tan, Felicidad Prudente, and Norma Respicio on the exhibition Visualizing Sound on March 14, 2019 at 2:30 pm at the 1F Galleries. Visualizing Sound is a collaborative exhibition which presents works 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. Join us as we create a broader understanding of how traditions and the contemporary setting harmonize through various forms of art. With exhibiting artist Gerardo Tan and Felicidad Prudente, together with insights from Norma A. Respicio who specializes in traditional art forms focusing on textiles, participate in learning transcribing from woven fabrics, articulating performance by presenting visuals, and portraying traditions through sound. Vargas Conversations: Visualizing Sound is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Vargas Museum at (+632) 981-8500 loc. 4024 (U.P. trunkline) or (+632) 928-1927, or send an email to vargasmuseum@up.edu.ph.
