UP Vargas Museum

UP Vargas Museum, in cooperation with Silverlens, opens Rituals of Invasion and Resistance, a solo exhibition by Norberto “Peewee” Roldan at the 1F Galleries on 2 September, Saturday, at 6 in the evening. A walk-through of the show happens at 4:30pm.

Rituals of Invasion and Resistance presents works in installation of the artist from different periods in his career, be it in their original forms, in new iterations or as reconstructions. Together for the first time, the installations reveal the backbone of Roldan’s body of work, straddling between contemporary art and material culture. The works negotiate the boundaries of life and art, history and critique.

Norberto Roldan (b. 1953) is a visual artist whose practice is rooted in social, political and cultural commentary surrounding everyday life, history and collective memory. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from St. Pius X Seminary, Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communications, and Master of Arts in Art Studies, both at the University of the Philippines. He initiated the Visayas Islands Visual Arts Exhibition and Conference (VIVA EXCON) in 1990, and co-founded Black Artists in Asia in 1986. He is currently the artistic director of Green Papaya Art Projects. He has been a consistent finalist and Juror’s Choice (1998) for the Philip Morris Philippines Art Award. He is represented in several landmark surveys of Southeast Asian contemporary art: New Art from Southeast Asia 1992, Fukuoka Asian Art Museum (1992); Negotiating Home History and Nation: Two Decades of Contemporary Art in Southeast Asia 1991-2011, Singapore Art Museum (2011); No Country: Contemporary Art For South/Southeast Asia, Solomon R Guggenheim Museum (2012); Between Declarations & Dreams: Art of Southeast Asia Since the 19th Century, National Gallery Singapore (2015); and, Sunshower: Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia 1980s to Now, National Art Centre Tokyo and Mori Art Museum (2017). He is also represented in two current Philippine exhibitions: Passion and Procession: Art of the Philippines, Art Gallery of New South Wales (2017); and, Philippine Art: Collecting Art, Collecting Memories, Asian Art Museum-San Francisco (2017).

Rituals of Invasion and Resistance runs until October 5.

3:00pm - FROM NATURE TO ARCHITECTURE: Gaudi's Sagrada Familia with Ar. Choie Funk

Free and open to the public, limited slots. Pre-register via vargasmuseum@gmail.com. 
The story of Gaudi's life speaks of the mystery of all exceptional talent with which every human being could be endowed. Coupling this notion with that particular era during which he was born, Gaudi's whole work was an expression of a period. The Basílica de la Sagrada Família, as with his other works, spans realities of the 19th century straight through the 21st, as we expect its completion in 2026. The 2018 Summer Art Workshops by Fernando B. Sena resume on 10 April. Registration is ongoing. The workshops are for kids (8+), teens, and adults.

Schedule: Every Tuesday 
9-11:30am (Beginner)
2:30-5pm (Advanced)

Each level is a total of eight sessions.

For details, please contact Mr. Sena at 376-2196 or 0918-951-9989 or the Vargas (Glenn/Linda) at 928-1927 during office hours. #drawing #painting #stilllife #portraiture #landscape #figures #Repost @heyhaselyn:

21 February 2018, Wednesday at 10am | 3F Galleries, Vargas Museum
Pre-registration encouraged, limited seats: vargasmuseum@gmail.com
Free and open to the public

Vargas Museum invites everyone to the activities for the Beyond Myself exhibition currently on view at the 3F Galleries. Organized by the Vargas, Scalabrini Migration Center Philippines, and UP Department of Political Science, the activities happen at 10am on Wednesday, 21 February 2018.

Nathalie Dagmang initiates the discussion of Beyond Myself and her art practice by walking the participants through the exhibition. Dagmang created several works in 2017 for the first Beyond Myself exhibition held at Goldsmiths, University of London.  As an active agent for the workshops held in London through the Curating Development project, she was able to share materials, reinterpret archives, and create art through interactions with the migrant workers and organizations.

The second part is a conversation with Dr. Anju Mary Paul, author of Multinational Maids: Stepwise Migration in a Global Labour Market. “Multinational" mobility is not restricted to the global elite. Drawing upon surveys with more than 1,000 Filipino and Indonesian migrant domestic workers in Singapore and Hong Kong, and in-depth interviews with well over 200 of these workers in Singapore, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Canada, and the United States, Dr. Paul documents how some migrant domestic workers are agentically adopting stepwise international labor migration as part of long-term mobility projects for themselves and their families. She lays out the building blocks that have led to the emergence of this global phenomenon, highlighting similar patterns of stepwise migration among other migrant groups, including migrant nurses, IT professionals, foreign academics, and international students.
