The Collection of Jane Ryan and William Saunders | Pio Abad

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.

Opening reception of Visualizing Sound at the 3F Galleries - 9 February, 6pm Exhibition runs until 16 March 2019. Visualizing Sound is an exhibition that presents the collaboration between artist Gerardo Tan, musicologist Felicidad A. Prudente, and master weaver Sammy Buhle. The exhibition reflects on the translation of forms through the work "Rendering", a video and audio documentation notated in modern sound symbols, which are then translated into visual images, and in turn interpreted in textile by the ikat method. Complementing this is another work by Tan titled Speaking in Tongue (inspired by an indigenous chant from Kalinga called sogna) that tries to articulate the production of vocal sounds resonating from a singer’s mouth. Thus, the exhibition Visualizing Sound becomes an intersection of modes rooted in tradition and enriched in multidisciplinary contexts. The Vargas Museum Education Guide for the show can be downloaded via link over at our Facebook page.
Vargas Museum Education Guides for our February 2019 exhibitions are now available online. The study guides are designed for discussions and activities for classes in Humanities, Art Studies, Anthropology, Fine Arts, Cultural Studies, History, Political and other Social Sciences. It is encouraged that course tutors/teachers have a pre-visit to the exhibition before the class’s actual visit. The education guides may be reproduced. For pre-visits and tours, please inquire via vargasmuseum@gmail.com. Go to our Facebook profile page for the links!
