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.
