Winner Jumalon at UP Vargas Museum

5 Mar 2017

Almost There began with a proposition, a fairly open one, but sufficiently pointed so that it could facet an angle from which to consider certain urgent concerns that the current world is facing as well as the complex history that had shaped it. The other impulse was to create opportunities for curatorial knowledge to be marked and conveyed across the generations. This aspect was sensitive to the process by which curation was demonstrated as a practice and in which emerging curators in the Philippines and Southeast Asia participated in carrying out the curatorial task along with peers who have had more exposure and experience in the field.”

Winner Jumalon presents his latest work for Almost There, an exhibition organised by the UP Vargas Museum and The Japan Foundation, Manila.

The exhibition runs from 2 March to 6 May at the University of the Philippines’ Jorge B. Vargas Museum and Filipiniana Research Center, with more information found on the UP Vargas Website.
