ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Yuchengco Museum opens its doors again to the public with a new exhibition entitled Ties of History: Art in Southeast Asia, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The exhibit features ten artists representing each ASEAN member state, held simultaneously in three major institutions in the Philippines: the Metropolitan Museum of Manila (MET Manila), the University of the Philippines Vargas Museum, and the Yuchengco Museum.
“Ties of history” is a phrase taken from a document signed by the ASEAN’s founding members on August 8, 1967. The document describes ASEAN as “a region already bound together by ties of history and culture.” A region that is “conscious that in an increasingly interdependent world, the cherished ideals of peace, freedom, social justice, and economic well-being are best attained by fostering good understanding, good neighborliness and meaningful cooperation among the countries of the region.”
Ties of History: Art in Southeast Asia aims to identify artists from across generations who have demonstrated both responsiveness and range in relation to the concerns of aesthetic material and socio-historical contexts. The artists include Amanda Heng (Singapore), Roberto Feleo (Philippines), Anusapati (Indonesia), Do Hoang Tuong (Vietnam), Savanhdary Vongpoothorn (Laos), Chris Chong Chan Fui (Malaysia), Jedsada Tangtrakulwong (Thailand), Min Thein Sung (Myanmar), Lyno Vuth (Cambodia), and Yasmin Jaidin (Brunei).
Held simultaneously in three major institutions in the Philippines: the Metropolitan Museum of Manila (MET Manila), the University of the Philippines Vargas Museum, and the Yuchengco Museum the exhibit will be on view until October 6, 2018.
