Take a Line For a Walk
Curated by Elmer Borlongan
20 June to 22 July 2017
1F Gallery
UP Vargas Museum

UP Vargas Museum, in collaboration with CANVAS, opens Take a Line For a Walk, a group exhibition curated by Elmer Borlongan on 20 June at 6 in the evening. It showcases a collection of drawings from different contemporary artists.

Take a Line for a Walk is derived from the modernist painter Paul Klee’s quote “Drawing is taking a line for a walk”. In this group exhibit, the painter Borlongan realizes his dream of curating visually arresting drawings by artists who are the most adept in their field. Majority of the works are monochromatic in nature and go back to the fundamentals of art making. According to Borlongan, “Using black and white is kind of spontaneous- you’re not really thinking of color to enhance the image or to embellish the images that you produce.”

The Center for Art, New Ventures and Sustainable Development (CANVAS) promotes greater awareness and appreciation for Philippine art and culture principally through exhibitions and projects that not only showcases artworks from some of the best young contemporary Filipino artists around, but also lead to the publication of books, prints, and other merchandise that make these artworks more accessible to more people.

Contemporary Filipino artists participating in this show are Benedicto “BenCab” Cabrera, Mike Adrao, Eugenia Alcaide, Marcel Antonio, Victor Balanon, Elmer Borlongan, Salvador Ching, Geloy Maligaya Concepcion, Louie Cordero, Melvin Culaba, Thomas Daquioag, Reynold dela Cruz, Alfredo Esquillo, Anna Fer, Emmanuel Garibay, Dennis Gonzales, Renato Habulan, Rommel Joson, Mark Justiniani, Joy Mallari, Dengcoy Miel, Jason Moss, Elaine Roberto Navas, Ian Quirante ,Iggy Rogriguez and Jose Tence Ruiz.

Session Advisory: The Art Workshops of Fernando B. Sena at the Vargas Basement concluded last 2 December. Sessions and registration will resume on 20 January 2018. More than a hundred guests gather at the public reception of Place of Region in the Contemporary on 8 December 2017, Friday. 
UP Vargas Museum opens this first project of the Philippine Contemporary Art Network (PCAN) built through three nodes in a network: Knowledge Production and Circulation; Exhibition and Curatorial Analysis; Public Engagement and Artistic Formation. The project endeavors to activate a network to coordinate a range of interventions in contemporary art in the Philippines and to cast a sharper profile for it on an inter-local and trans-regional scale. It is keen to confront the requirements of research and discourse; curate art and subject the curatorial gesture to critique; and propose modes of catalyzing the public sphere of art and in the process harness the energies of its agents. The project at the UP Vargas Museum will run until 27 January 2018. Public programs for the project will happen next year. The Philippine Contemporary Art Network (PCAN) will open its initial project at the Vargas Museum on 8 December 2017 at 4pm. For more information, visit http://pcan.org.ph or the Facebook event page of the project: Place of Region in the Contemporary DEVOUR will close today at 5pm at the 3F Galleries.
