The Lopez Museum and Library presents Pauses of Possibility, works birthed out of personal narratives or moments of quiet, amplified, and translated into large-scale works and tangible sculptural pieces. Marina Cruz, Kara de Dios, Elaine Navas and Pam Yan Santos create memory-stills and fragments of introspection. From the Lopez Museum and Library’s collection, works by Nena Saguil, Anita Magsaysay-Ho, Pacita Abad and select pieces by Juan Luna and Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo are interspersed and displayed with the institution’s Rizaliana collection. Pauses of Possibility opens to the public on 20 February and runs until 17 June 2017.

Tie A String Around the World is currently on exhibit at the Jorge B. Vargas Museum and Filipiniana Research Center. This homecoming re-stages the Philippines’ official exhibition at the Venice Art Biennale in 2015, fifty-one years after its first national participation in 1964. It presents the works of Manuel Conde, Carlos “Botong” Francisco, Manny Montelibano, and Jose Tence Ruiz; and a documentation of the collateral initiations of David Medalla in collaboration with Adam Nankervis. Objects that broaden the discourse on worldmaking, such as maps and the lingling-o, as discussed in the Pavilion catalogue will also be exhibited.

See #LUZ@90 Curated by Ambeth R. Ocampo at the Ateneo Art Gallery. The exhibition celebrates the 90th birth anniversary of Arturo R. Luz, National Artist for Visual Arts through featuring his recent and early works. Selected works featured in the exhibit will form part of the Ambeth R. Ocampo bequest to the Ateneo de Manila University. See also Lines: Pictures and Poems by Jose Garcia Villa, a selection of his work as a visual artist. In many cases, it illustrates the marriage of the visual arts and poetry. The materials on display are taken from the Jose Garcia Villa collection, donated to the Ateneo de Manila University by the Literary Estate of Jose Garcia Villa in 2012 and deposited at the Rizal Library. Also featured are Reflections: AAG in Review, an exhibit that will look back at the AAG collection and the space as it was half a century ago and Ligalig, exhibit on the social realist works in AAG collection.

February 18
Manila Museums Tour: Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (MCAD), Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), and Metropolitan Museum of Manila
Saturday, 10:00 AM to 6:30 PM
FEE: Members Php1,500.00 & Non-Members Php1,700.00
INCLUSIONS: Guided tour of the National Museum of Fine Arts, Van Transfer, Snacks and Lunch and One Day Pass to Art Fair Philippines 2017

MCAD presents Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness, a selected survey of rarely-seen experimental short films and video installations by the artist, alongside his photography, drawings, sketches, and archival material that explore threads of socio-political commentary. The exhibition is curated by Gridthiya Gaweewong and produced by iCI (Independent Curators International).

At the CCP, view Last Full Show: Danilo Dalena Retrospective, an exhibition that dispells that Dalena hibernated from art as it reveals suites of drawings and paintings only recently done even as the artist has been slowed by several health crises. Characteristic of Dalena’s signature affinity with the scatological and repellant, what could be of particular interest is his yet unfinished series of images referencing unseemly acts and antics in seedy movie houses.

The Metropolitan Museum of Manila features its landmark permanent exhibition The Philippine Contemporary: To Scale the Past and the Possible which charts the development of modern art – including the significant shifting tides in Philippine art history from the early 20th century to the present – and the vitality of contemporary art in the Philippines. Curated by well-known art critic and scholar, Dr. Patrick Flores, the exhibit encompasses a wide range of forms, from paintings, installations, visual culture and popular media such as comics, photography, film, and video. See also Shadow Forest: Encounters and Exploration, A Ronald Ventura Exhibition, a comprehensive display of Ventura’s most significant sculptures, prints, drawings and other works in the over 1,000 square meter ground floor gallery space.
