Happening now: Opening of Place of Region in the Contemporary exhibiting the works of Ayco, Bose, Imao, and Junyee at the Vargas Museum. The works of Santiago Bose from 1970s to 2002 and journals from the 1960s are exhibited.
Place of Region in the Contemporary is the 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.
Exhibition is from 08 December 2017 to 27 January 2018.
