WOVEN TEMPLATES: AN EXHIBITION OF PHILIPPINE CONTEMPORARY TEXTILES

Woven Templates: An Exhibition of Philippine Contemporary Textiles of Dr. Norma A. Respicio

The UP Vargas Museum opens its 2009 calendar with Woven Templates: An Exhibition of Philippine Contemporary Textiles on January 15 (Thursday), 6:00 PM at the Landing Gallery.

The exhibition features the works of textile weaving communities in Mindanao, Panay, and the Cordillera and Ilocos in Luzon. Celebrating the continuity of tradition, the designs highlight the competence of weavers in techniques and designs such as the ikat/binudbudan tie-dye resist, pinilian supplementary weft, warp float, suk-suk scattered supplementary weft, among others. The weavers draw inspiration from their natural surroundings, world view, beliefs and aspirations. The materials, design techniques, design forms and functions of the finished works echo the weaver's accumulated knowledge and skills passed through generations. For the weavers, textile production is not only an economic endeavor, but also an activity that represents their individual creative expressions and identity as a community.

The textiles come from the collection of Dr. Norma A. Respicio, Professor of Art Studies at the College of Arts and Letters, UP Diliman. Her primary fields of specialization are on the history and aesthetics of traditional art forms with specific focus on textiles, primarily on those of the Philippines.

In line with the exhibition, the Museum Foundation of the Philippines, Inc. (MFPI) will co-sponsor a special lecture by Dr. Respicio on January 21, 2009, Wednesday, 3:00 PM at the Kawilihan Gallery, 2/F, Jorge B. Vargas Museum, UP Diliman, Quezon City.
