International Exhibition ‘Almost There’ at the Vargas Museum
The Japan Foundation Asia Center and the Vargas Museum are pleased to announce “Almost There,” an exhibition at the University of the Philippines’ Jorge B. Vargas Museum and Filipiniana Research Center, co-curated by Patrick D. Flores (Vargas Museum) and Kyongfa Che (Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo).
This group exhibition is presented as part of the Japan Foundation Asia Center’s “Condition Report,” a collaborative art project with emerging young curators from Japan and Southeast Asia.
Almost There attempts to create resonance among a wide range of research, as well as of expressions of contemporary art from diverse parts of the world, including Africa and Latin America, areas with which the Philippine public has very scant acquaintance.
Included in the exhibition are works/projects by selected artists in various media including painting, sculpture, film/video, installation and performance, as well as small-scale curatorial projects by Southeast Asian curators Ayos Purwoaji Surip Mawardi, Lisa Ito-Tapang, and Lyno Vuth that respond to a specific work by a participating artist or to a context drawn from the concept of the exhibition.
Almost There will happen from March 2 – 6, 2017 at the UP Vargas Museum, Roxas Ave., University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City. Entrance to the museum is at P20 for UP students, alumni, faculty, and employees, and P30 for the general public. Viewing hours is from Tuesday to Saturday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.
The exhibition will have its opening night on March 2, 2017 at 6:00 pm.
