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.

The symposium will be held on 15 December from 10am to 5pm and includes public events, lectures, instructions, panel meditations alongside sonic scores in the open exchange of the project. The symposium centers on the changing conditions for artists practising today in Manila and surrounding provinces and those working outside of the Philippines. Dr. Elizabeth A. Povinelli is an esteemed anthropologist and the Franz Boas Professor of Anthropology in Columbia University, New York. Povinelli describes her practice: “My writing has focused on developing a critical theory of late liberalism that would support an anthropology of the otherwise. Informed primarily by the traditions of American pragmatism and continental immanent theory and grounded in the circulation of values, materialities, and socialities. This potential theory has unfolded primarily from within a sustained relationship with Indigenous colleagues in north Australia and across five books, numerous essays, and four films with the Karrabing Film Collective. Geontologies: A Requiem to Late Liberalism was the 2017 recipient of the Lionel Trilling Book Award. Karrabing films were awarded the 2015 Visible Award and the 2015 Cinema Nova Award Best Short Fiction Film, Melbourne International Film Festival and have shown internationally including in the Berlinale Forum Expanded, Sydney Biennale; MIFF, the Tate Modern, documenta-14, and the Contour Biennale.” Her publications include: Geontologies: A Requiem to Late Liberalism; Economies of Abandonment: Social Belonging and Endurance in Late Liberalism; The Empire of Love: Toward a Theory of Intimacy, Genealogy, and Carnality, A Public Planet Book, among others.
