Handumanan Exhibit at the UP Vargas Museum

The UP Vargas Museum opens the exhibit Handumanan on 11 October at the 3F South Wing Gallery.
A Visayan word synonymous with keepsake, memory, and remembrance, Handumanan evokes images, sites and places, people, and stories of the Visayan region through a diverse gathering of works by contemporary artists from the Visayas, ranging from drawings and paintings, to photographs and video works.

Conversing with these artworks are selected pieces from the archives and memorabilia collection of Visayan-born Jorge B. Vargas, featuring literature, folklore, maps, and ethnographic accounts of the region, as well as dictionaries and prayer books in various Visayan languages. Mark Justiniani, Maria Taniguchi, Mark Valenzuela, Nana Buxani, Veejay Villafranca, Charlie Co, Raul Agner, Aniceto Barredo, Paul Pfeiffer, Manny Montelibano, Kristoffer Ardeña, Brenda and Libertad Fajardo, Roberto Feleo, and Antipas Delotavo participate in this conversation on the Visayas, together with the texts of Jean-Paul Dumont, Francisco Alcina, Felix Laureano, and Eugenio Ealdama.

As a tribute to the creative expressions from the Visayas region, the exhibition opens the 12th VIVA-ExCon, a biennial event presenting the visual arts of the Visayas from 08 to 11 November in Dumaguete City.
