  8. Good day!

    May I ask if Vargas Museum is accepting requests for it to be a venue for an educational field trip? The local state university, in which I was formerly employed in, is hoping to make Vargas Museum part of their itinerary during one of their educational field trips this August 2012. They are planning to send a request letter probably within the week. They’ve approached me to inquire about said concern because I’m an alumnus of the College of Arts and Letters.

    Hoping to hear from you regarding the aforementioned concern.

    Thank you very much and more power!

    Sincerely,

    KHC

  12. I have seen the Philippine diorama history several years ago. Is the Vargas Museum where I saw this exhibit?

    Posted by Keith Kennedy | February 15, 2012, 4:29 pm
  13. Dear Dr Flores,

    Ms Meah See of Bahay Tsinoy would like to bring her students (high school) there for a tour. She was wondering if the Vargas Museum can also give a talk on art as it reflects history, especially Philippine history. Ms See recalls seeing a timeline of Philippine art in one of the galleries there. Her contact details are meahsee@gmail.com and 09178226324.

    Thank you in advance for the assistance.

    Sincerely,

    Mary Ann Josette E. Pernia

An Ecological, The Obligatory Reading Series (Season 1)

Closing the first year of PCAN, the Public Engagement and Artistic Formation introduces an itinerant educational initiative in the form of a reading group, established to explore ideas and accommodate materials collected and discussed by the institution’s ongoing research. The reading group is a bi-monthly meeting, hosted in the last week of a month. 
The initial series of reading proceeds from the use of the term “ecological/ecology” in understanding practices of public engagement and artistic formation. In the first meeting (January 25), we will focus on Isabelle Stengers’ work that qualifies the scientific and political dimensions of the ecological as a method of creating relations and as a mode of understanding these relationships to the world. We will ask how these relations create ‘modern’ practices and their other through conceptual vectors utilized by Stengers, such as pharmakon, factishistic proposition, and constraints. The second meeting (January 26) will be an exercise on reading data and statistics about rice production and supply through Mark Sanchez’s project Rice Food Web (2017). Moderated by the artist, the session releases the interpretation of these articles into an open platform of alternative and multiple readings of information. We will ask the agency and dynamics of artistic research/artist-led research in the economy of ‘scientific’ information and policy-oriented knowledge production. In the final meeting (January 27), we will read into a history of an institution and institution-building through its documentation, collected and archived outside its context in Marawi. This session will be an encounter with the Dansalan Quarterly Journal, a community-based, interdisciplinary publication produced by the Dansalan Junior College (now Dansalan Research Foundation) in 1975. 
Session 1 | 3:30 – 5:00 PM, 25 Jan
Cosmopolitics I
Isabelle Stengers
Moderated by Renan Laru-An

Session 2 | 3:30 – 5:00 PM, 26 Jan

Dansalan Quarterly Journal Traversals/Trajectories: Expansive Localities
Curator’s Walk-through 
and Conversation with Martin Lorenzo De Mesa and Kat Palasi

25 January 2018| Thursday, 2:30-5pm, 1F Lobby

Tessa Maria Guazon, coordinator of the Exhibition and Curatorial Analysis component of PCAN, shares her ideas and processes through a curatorial walk-through of "Traversals/Trajectories: Expansive Localities" at the 1F Lobby of Vargas Museum. The exhibition explores ideas of the region and the different “practices of placeness” in Philippine contemporary art by tracing numerous strains of place making in the works of artists from different localities across the Philippines.

A conversation with two of the thirteen featured artists of Traversals/Trajectories follows the curator’s walk-through; visual storyteller and textile artist Kat Palasi and interdisciplinary artist Martin de Mesa offer insights into their art practice as well as their specific local contexts.

Place of Region in the Contemporary, the initial project of the Philippine Contemporary Art Network (PCAN), closes with several activities on the last week of January 2018. The four exhibitions currently on view at the Place of Region in the Contemporary introduce the four nodes of the network. 
All events are free and open to the public. Pre-registration via vargasmuseum@gmail.com preferred. Contact during office hours: 928-1927

The first lecture of Roberto G. Paulino in the Art Historiography Series of PCAN through the Place of Region in the Contemporary focuses on the study of the Filipino modernist Jess Ayco who lived and worked in Bacolod.

The exhibition explores ideas of the region and the different “practices of placeness” in Philippine contemporary art by tracing numerous strains of place making in the works of artists from different localities across the Philippines. Collateral activities are organized with the exhibition, including a discussion platform to examine impulses underlying the curatorial —those that frame and activate localities in their assertion of claims to place against an overarching globality.

Born or based in the regions of Bacolod, Baguio, Jolo, and Los Baños, the artists represent the disparate conditions and production in Philippine modern and contemporary art. *****************************************24 January 2018
