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.
