Exposition | Cian Dayrit, Liv Vinluan, et al
1 September 2016 - 23 December 2016
The exhibition looks into one of the most excessively and overtly used words in the Spanish colonial context (“exposition”), and enacts its meaning to realign questions that punctuate this historical episode. Marrying the tangible with the ideological, the show will highlight three segments of the Lopez Collection that refer to varying projects undertaken by Spain on the Philippine colony– the cartography collection (maps), the numerous rare books and materials written in Spanish (language and translations of texts) and lastly taxonomic projects on flora, one of the most iconic is of Fr. Manuel Blanco’s Flora de Filipinas.
Doing away with the strict linear telling of history, the exhibition will concentrate on the terrains in which these particular projects are framed. Through these anchors, we hope to flesh out how historical production is reliant on how facts, myths, contingencies and limitations are fashioned, hewn and strung-together.
Exposition brings together contemporary artists Cian Dayrit, Liv Vinluan and curatorial projects by Lighting Studies: CTCCCs. The exhibition is co-presented by Instituto Cervantes with support from the Cultural Department of the Embassy of Spain in Manila.
