DIVINATION


Divination: Brenda Fajardo Retells History
10 December 2009 – 10 January 2010
Lobby and West Wing Galleries

The Art Studies Foundation together with the University of the Philippines Vargas Museum present the exhibit Divination: Brenda Fajardo Retells History which opens on December 10, 2009, Thursday, 10AM (Art Studies Launch Program) and 6 PM (general public) at the Lobby and West Wing Galleries. Featuring the works of Brenda V. Fajardo in her own collection, the exhibit is part of the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Department of Art Studies (DAS), formerly the Humanities.

Fajardo, an artist, curator, cultural worker, educator, and Professor Emerita of the Department, is well known for her early works in prints and the tarot card-inspired paintings. She started her career in the performing arts where she was initiated to dance, body movement, and theater production. At present she is active in the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA). Line and movement stirred her fascination with the pictorial characteristics of prints. She trained under Manuel Rodriguez, Sr. upon returning to the Philippines after studying abroad. Abstract lines juxtaposed with human figures typify her early prints like. In later years, she focused on her women and tarot card series to reference folk culture, local history, and the concerns of women within the social sphere. Fajardo is a pioneering woman artist in Philippine contemporary art and is highly regarded for her broad sympathies in the field of culture.

The exhibit will run until January 10, 2010. The Museum is open on Tuesdays to Sundays, 9 am to 4 pm.
