The Collection of Jane Ryan and William Saunders | Pio Abad

28 August to 30 September 2014 | Exhibition opening: Thursday, 28 August at 6 P.M., GF Lobby and West Wing Galleries

Pio Abad choreographs these things and the tales animating them to initiate a critical conversation on the discourses of singularity, surplus, and semblance. He looks at them as traces of something sordid, a body of evidence that exhibits morbid symptoms of a possible psychopathology of power.

@upvargasmuseum and @metmuseummanila open two new shows on 21 April, Saturday, 4:00 p.m at the ground floor galleries of the MET. "Fascination with Filipiniana: The Vargas Museum Collection" and "In the Wake of War and the Modern: Manila, 1941 to 1961" feature the comprehensive collection of the Jorge B. Vargas Museum and Filipiniana Research Center of the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City. Drawing reference from the collection’s roots, "Fascination with Filipiniana: The Vargas Museum Collection” examines the artworks and archives that comprise the Vargas Museum collection, and Jorge B. Vargas’ place in the history of Philippine art and culture. Fascination, a translation of his compound fondly called Kawilihan, not only alludes to Vargas’ instinct, habit and passion for collecting, but also includes the word “nation,” a discourse relevant to him at a time when he was both a government official and a collector. "In the Wake of War and the Modern: Manila, 1941 to 1961" explores how the collections of the Vargas Museum and the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas interconnect, and the historical context that surrounds their respective formations. Framed by the years when Vargas was appointed Mayor of Manila, until the time when he became Regent of the University of the Philippines, the period also marks the emergence of both the modern and the so-called “Mabini Art” from Manila before, during, and after the Pacific War. "Fascination with Filipiniana: The Vargas Museum Collection" and "In the Wake of War and the Modern: Manila, 1941 to 1961" will run until July 21, 2018 For more information, please contact the Metropolitan Museum of Manila at 708.7829 or send an email to info@metmuseum.ph.
