Take a Line For a Walk
Curated by Elmer Borlongan
20 June to 22 July 2017
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.
