I KNOW, I should write about murders, homicides, war crimes, crimes against humanity and all that hair-raising stuff, but being Filipino made me write this article. I can’t help it, the indio in me made me do it.

From July 1 to 24, 2022, the National Art Gallery of Singapore will organize the Festival of International Films on Art entitled “Painting with Light”. The exhibition will focus on films made by artists from Southeast Asia. The program, says its executive director, Suenne Megan Tan, will focus among other things on works by artists who engage with government, art and culture. She said the purpose of the Film Festival is to create engaging artistic encounters through film programs that would “highlight the ways in which artists intervene in their communities with their points of view, indigeneity and colonialism, politics and artistic creation”.

The National Gallery is housed in the Old City Hall and Supreme Court of Singapore, iconic structures in the Lion City, and is located across the Padang, the Malay word for an open field or esplanade. It is a listed open space where the most significant events in Singapore’s history as a nation took place.

The gallery showcases 8,000 pieces from the National Collection of Singapore, one of the largest carefully selected collections of Southeast Asian art in the world. It’s also considered Asia’s premier art museum – exhibit your artwork here after you’ve met the strict museum requirements and you’ve done it – dead or alive.

It is led by Dr. Eugene Tan, an eloquent, brilliant, yet humble human being whom I have the privilege of knowing. Once, during lunch, I realized that for someone so young, he occupies such an important position with hundreds of employees. What he said in response explains why Singapore is so successful: “I’m just a government employee.” One of the gallery’s curators is Clarissa Chikiamco, a Filipino art scholar and writer. She warms the shells of Filipino hearts.

Various works by artists from Southeast Asia will be presented during the exhibition. The Philippine exhibition will be highlighted by the screening of “Tadhana” (Destiny) by Severino “Nonoy” Marcelo. The exhibition’s well-done digital catalog refers to it as the first animated feature film from the Philippines.

“Tadhana” was commissioned by Ferdinand Marcos Sr. and shows the history of the Philippines with a fun twist that only Nonoy Marcelo, the creator of “Tisoy”, “Ikabod” and other famous works, could do. According to Noel de Vera, “Tadhana” is the most enjoyable lesson in the history of the Philippines. The first airing was on September 21, 1978, it was never aired again, and the film mysteriously disappeared.

“This is the only known copy of the film recorded on Betamax tape by film archivist Teddy Co and has been digitized by Mowelfund,” the catalog reads.

According to artist Pandy Aviado, several artists such as Santi Bose, Mike Parsons and himself participated in the making of the film and that it also showed in caricature the young faces of famous artists of the time: Federico Aguilar Alcuaz, Cesar Legaspi, Ang Kiu Kok, HR Ocampo and Arturo Luz.

Another featured work by a Filipino is “Somnambulist”, a 5-minute silent film by Victor Balanon. Another film is that of Janus Victoria titled “Mito ng Maynila” (Myth of Manila). The film won international awards. Another film is Don Josephus Raphael Eblahan’s “Headhunter’s Daughter”, a 15-minute short film in Ilokano, with subtitles. It won the Grand Jury Prize for Short Film at the South East Film Festival. Yet another is a 1985 film by multi-award winning artist, Rox Lee. “Conversation in Space”, directed by the late artist and historian Rod Paras-Perez and considered one of the first experimental films from the Philippines, is also screened.

The cinematographic creations of other artists from different countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Myanmar are also well represented. Myanmar surprised me because I didn’t know it had such a rich cinematic tradition.

Art not only provides an aesthetic experience, it also conveys knowledge of a nation’s culture and people, it gives us insight into a nation’s creative talents that persist despite the curse of human existence. Art is an artifact of creation. It is proof of what did not exist before. This is proof that man has tried and continues to try to escape the significance of the coccyx. The coccyx or coccyx is a triangular bony structure located at the base of our spine. Some say this is proof that we once had tails like lizards, which is why humans often resort to primitive methodology.

Next week, I will write again on “serious” subjects – chaotic and crazed ranks, wreaking havoc on civilized society and whose main concern is to destroy all evidence of creative activity.

Next week I will, I promise.

Vancouver Art Gallery secures $29 million in federal funding for future Herzog & de Meuron house https://911gallery.org/vancouver-art-gallery-secures-29-million-in-federal-funding-for-future-herzog-de-meuron-house/ Thu, 30 Jun 2022 19:00:41 +0000 https://911gallery.org/vancouver-art-gallery-secures-29-million-in-federal-funding-for-future-herzog-de-meuron-house/ Timed right for Canada Day on July 1, the Vancouver Art Gallery (VAG) announced this week that it will receive C$29 million ($22 million) in federal funding for its new building, which is set to open its doors. doors in 2027.

Timed right for Canada Day on July 1, the Vancouver Art Gallery (VAG) announced this week that it will receive C$29 million ($22 million) in federal funding for its new building, which is set to open its doors. doors in 2027. The total sum includes C$25 million ($19 million) in federal funding from Infrastructure Canada through the Green and Inclusive Community Buildings (GICB) program, as well as additional funding of 4.3 million Canadian dollars ($3.3 million) from the Department of Canadian Heritage.

The new Chan Center for Visual Arts, which is expected to exceed net zero carbon energy standards and feature solar heating, triple-glazed windows and heat pumps, will be the first art gallery built to Passive House standards in North America and, at some 300,000 m², the largest in the world. Designed by Herzog & de Meuron, with shimmering skin evoking local Indigenous weaving patterns, it will include a multi-purpose Indigenous community house, theater, public art spaces and programming for marginalized and underserved groups.

The new funding means that, together with private donations, including a C$100 million gift from the Audain Foundation and C$40 million from the Chan Family Foundation, C$270 million of the overall C$400 million budget Canadian dollars ($310 million) were raised. The BC provincial government contributed C$50 million, while the city donated land in a prime downtown location under a 99-year lease.

The significant fundraising progress marks a turning point in an often contentious 15-year campaign to secure a new facility for the VAG, which has outgrown its current space in the former Provincial Courthouse at 750 Hornby Street. There was much public debate about the design, budget and overall concept of the new gallery, and the architects made several revisions. It was originally led by former VAG manager Kathleen Bartelswho stepped down after 17 years at the helm in 2019 after a labor dispute and ongoing issues around the new gallery (she is now director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto).

“Funding from Infrastructure Canada and the Department of Canadian Heritage contributes to the resources needed to make the new Vancouver Art Gallery an international leader in environmental sustainability,” gallery director Anthony Kiendl said in a statement. communicated.

He added that the new gallery, which is expected to begin construction early next year, is “on track to be a platform to amplify the voices of local and international artists, indigenous communities and diverse cultures, and will be a community gathering place for people of all ages. , cultures and origins to meet and share ideas.”

Government funding for major museum projects in British Columbia can be a contentious issue. Earlier this month, plans to completely demolish and rebuild the Royal BC Museum in the provincial capital, Victoria, to the tune of C$789 million ($609 million) were scrapped amid outcry over the project price.

CHARLOTTE- Noi Vong wants to disrupt Charlotte’s nightlife.

His luxurious Bazal Gallery & Nightclub opens this weekend at the Avid Xchange Music Factory. The focus is on providing an exclusive experience and a new take on nightlife on par with cities like New York.

“Let’s put Charlotte on the map. I’m tired of hearing about it elsewhere,” he says. “We need culture.

The entertainment industry veteran – also behind QC Social in the city center – says Bazal took three years to prepare, as he juggled everything from Covid-related delays to labor issues. work. He invested nearly $2 million to transform the space.

“Finally it’s happening,” he said.

The 7,000 square foot venue – inspired by Art Basel – offers two distinct experiences. There is the gallery and the discotheque.

Expect the two-level space — which once housed the Butter nightclub — to draw inspiration from museums and art galleries, such as New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Vancouver Art Gallery’s Uninvited Exhibition Centers Female Artists in Our Narrative of Modern Canadian Art https://911gallery.org/vancouver-art-gallerys-uninvited-exhibition-centers-female-artists-in-our-narrative-of-modern-canadian-art/ Sat, 25 Jun 2022 22:42:21 +0000 https://911gallery.org/vancouver-art-gallerys-uninvited-exhibition-centers-female-artists-in-our-narrative-of-modern-canadian-art/ Vancouver Art Gallery’s new major exhibition Not Invited: Canadian Women Artists of the Modern Movement presents an immense range of artistic production and female creativity.

Vancouver Art Gallery’s new major exhibition Not Invited: Canadian Women Artists of the Modern Movement presents an immense range of artistic production and female creativity.

The “modern movement” refers to the 1920s-1940s and the artistic movement that arose during this period of transformation. Traditionally, our understanding of this movement includes artists such as the Group of Seven, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, and has suffered from a lack of sexual and racial representation. Uninvited begins to change that.

I was immediately surprised by the first room’s display of emotionally intense and vibrant portraits. In particular, Lilias Torrance Newton’s portrayal of Elise Kingman mesmerized me. The artist’s friend is painted in elegant, restrained clothes on a gray background. As she gazes to her right, her features are illuminated by a soft, warm light that highlights her calm, caring expression. The two women had served together in the First World War, and the portrait is painted with all the affection and tenderness of a long-standing friendship.

Portraits of women painted by men, which have been canonized by Western art history, are rarely imbued with the same agency that Newton gives to his subject and friend. This idea of ​​a talent agency followed me through rooms of landscape paintings, botanical studies, sculpture, clothing, baskets and photography.

To walk through rooms of such a variety of expressions of female creativity was a special experience – a rare experience, as female artists have been so emphatically ignored by art historians until relatively recently. It was inspiring to see such attention to the intentions of the artists in the curating of the exhibition by Sarah Milroy, with museum labels detailing the context in which the pieces were made.

Many of the artists featured have often been discussed in relation to their male counterparts: the Group of Seven who produced what has become the epitome of Canadian landscape paintings. The exhibition wishes to acknowledge the divergence of many female artists from the subject matter of their male counterparts’ “wildscape”.

The exhibit featured settler, native and immigrant artists whose works addressed the dramatic, and often painful, changes taking place at the time. These women addressed the themes of industrialization, environmental change, psychology, indigenous cultures and immigration experiences.

I fear, however, that by condensing such a wide range of mediums, subjects, subjects, artists, and styles into one exhibition, we risk ironing out the nuance of the work and intentions of each of these artists. Museum captions do not seem to be adequate markers of the amount of artistic variance within such a large exhibit.

I had hoped to leave the exhibition with a clearer understanding of the “modern movement” that consolidates these works. I found myself remembering the range of works I had seen, searching for the guiding thread that tied the works together, which contained the answers to questions such as “What were the main themes of the modern movement?” and “Who is the job?” included and excluded from our discourse around the movement?

I will definitely return to the exhibition. There are too many amazing works to fully experience in one visit. I have found the time spent admiring, questioning and analyzing these hitherto understudied works of female creativity to be encouraging and important as we continue to rewrite tired and patriarchal understandings of art movements.

The Pannett Art Gallery in Whitby displays Peace Rose on the 40th anniversary of the Falklands conflict https://911gallery.org/the-pannett-art-gallery-in-whitby-displays-peace-rose-on-the-40th-anniversary-of-the-falklands-conflict/ Tue, 21 Jun 2022 14:50:00 +0000 https://911gallery.org/the-pannett-art-gallery-in-whitby-displays-peace-rose-on-the-40th-anniversary-of-the-falklands-conflict/ This Peace Rose was designed by Argentinian artisan Juan Carlos Pallarols, a master goldsmith with over 60 years of experience in the art of goldsmithing.

This Peace Rose was designed by Argentinian artisan Juan Carlos Pallarols, a master goldsmith with over 60 years of experience in the art of goldsmithing.

This is a unique opportunity for residents and visitors to Whitby to see an object from a national collection on their doorstep.

Pannett Art Gallery Committee Chair, Cllr Linda Wild said: “We are so delighted to have this fabulous sculpture on display at the Pannett Art Gallery.

The Rose of Peace.

“We are delighted that the Imperial War Museums have chosen Whitby, as a twin town with Stanley in the Falklands, to display this beautiful rose to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Falklands conflict.”

Pallarols began the process of forging remnants of the 1982 Falklands conflict into Roses for Peace at his workshop in San Telmo, Buenos Aires.

Using casings and melted bullets, Pallarols and his volunteers created handcrafted roses in tribute to the men and women who lost their lives.

This repurposing of military hardware for artwork is a similar idea to “trench art”.

The Rose of Peace on display at Whitby’s Pannett Art Gallery.

In an effort to assist in the reconciliation process between Britain and Argentina, and in remembrance of the dead, peace roses were presented at key locations including the Argentinian Cemetery in Darwin, the British Cemetery in San Carlos and the Stanley Dockyard Historical Museum.

This rose of peace was presented to the Imperial War Museums in November 2017 by the Argentine Ambassador to the United Kingdom, in the presence of a representative of Pallarols.

It is on loan from the Imperial War Museums as part of the 40th anniversary commemorations of the Falklands conflict.

The Rose of Peace is on display until the end of July.

The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (last entry at 4 p.m.).

Major cities around the world usually have iconic buildings housing their art galleries, and Penang should follow suit.

The former government quarters at No. 6, Jalan Sepoy Lines have been designated as an extension of the Penang State Art Gallery (PSAG) and a new destination for art.

Gallery director Haryany Mohamad said initial inspections showed the main two-story building, which sits on 0.5ha of land, was in good condition despite being unoccupied for a decade.

She said it was built in the 1920s at a cost of Straits $20,000 and was occupied by the Department of Lands and Minerals until 2004.

From 2005 to 2012, he served as the Director of Accountant General’s Department of Penang.

“We estimate that it will take approximately two years to renovate the main building and ancillary structures before the gallery opens to the public.

“For now, it is planned that this space will house the permanent collection of the PSAG,” she said at a recent press conference.

The collection currently has approximately 1,800 pieces dating from the 1800s to the present day, ranging from paintings to sculptures, photographs, ceramics, prints and other mixed media works.

Its creators include famous names like arts pioneer Datuk Chuah Thean Teng, Datuk Mohd Hoessein Enas and Abdullah Arif.

There are also pieces by William Daniell and Captain Robert Smith of the East India Company, depicting scenes from Penang 200 years ago.

The PSAG currently has two two-storey exhibition spaces at the rear of Dewan Sri Pinang, but these are generally used for ongoing and rotating exhibitions.

Although unoccupied for a decade, the two-story building is still in good condition.Although unoccupied for a decade, the two-story building is still in good condition.

As such, Haryany said the new Jalan Sepoy Lines building will provide much needed additional space.

However, it is also dependent on the state government’s decision to renovate the Light Street Multipurpose Auditorium.

If that happens, the new space could become PSAG’s main residence.

Anyway, the chairman of the state tourism and creative economy committee, Yeoh Soon Hin, said it was time for the PSAG to have an independent building to serve as a focal point for art. in Penang.

“In Europe, museums and art galleries are major attractions for tourists. London has the British Museum and the Natural History Museum, while Paris has the Louvre.

“I have a vision to create more spaces like these in Penang, not only to house invaluable assets that celebrate our heritage, but also to be a catalyst for the local art economy by attracting enthusiasts of art from all over the world to come and spend money here.

“This would in turn create more opportunities for local art practitioners. As this site has been vacant for 10 years, its transformation will be a milestone for the local art scene,” Yeoh noted.

He then joined Haryany, Penang Datuk Chief Financial Officer Dr Mohamad Farazi Johari, State Heritage Commissioner Rosli Nor, PSAG Board Chairman Lee Khai and other officials for a site visit.
