THE BANQUET: Subject matter I of III | Jaime Pacena II

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.
