UP Vargas Museum

UP Vargas Museum, in cooperation with the family of Carlos Valino, Jr., and The University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts, opens Obra ni Val: Carlos Valino, Jr. Retrospective on May 12. Public reception is on May 24, Wednesday, 6pm at the 1F Galleries.

Carlos P. Valino, Jr. (b. 1926 – d. 2008) is an artist, professor and storyteller whose expertise in portraiture has received acclaim from students, peers and colleagues. He was a Ramon Roces Scholarship Grantee of UP School of Fine Arts and Architecture (eventually became the UP College of Fine Art, separate from the College of Architecture). He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1951. Being one of the last students of Fernando Amorsolo, Ireneo Miranda and Dominador Castañeda, he has mastered realism – so much so that he could sketch proficiently any figure out of memory and demonstrate it in class. His illustrations dabble on folk culture and local history, and they have been featured in numerous publications including Liwayway magazine. His works are installed in the University of the Philippines, National Library, National Museum, Coconut Palace, and the Malacañang Palace.

The retrospective is a celebration of Valino: a boy from Nueva Ecija who survived the Japanese Occupation, persevered in his studies and mastered his craft. The exhibit will feature Valino’s early and late works (historical paintings, genre paintings, and portraiture), illustrations and personal objects.

Obra ni Val: Carlos Valino, Jr. Retrospective runs until June 13.

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!
