The UP Jorge Vargas Museum

As second of a series held alongside the commemoration of the Centenary of the 
Federation of Philippine Labor and the establishment of the Philippine 
Independent Church, Hardware 2 presents new projects by a mixed batch composed 
of social realists and a fresh generation of socially-engaged practitioners.

Hardware 2 features Nunelucio Alvarado, Pablo Baensantos,  Antipas
Delotavo, Gene De Loyola, Leonilo Doloricon, Edgar Talusan Fernandez, Cap
Reyes and Jose Tence Ruiz along with  Jes Aznar, Mideo Cruz, Boy
Dominguez, Boyet De Mesa, Emmanuel Garibay, Nonito Pongan, Ronaldo Quiocho

cross-media practitioners Alfredo Juan Aquilizan, Nelson Ferraris  and Ed
Manalo . Showing for the first time will be Danilo Ilag-Ilag, who here
collaborates on a large installation with Tence Ruiz, who also curates the

On display will be new installations, digital prints, sculpture, painting, 
constructions and opening night performances by Cruz and Ronaldo Ruiz. Hardware 
2 follows a series began in August of this year that looked back to the 
founding of, among others, the Union Obrera Democratica in 1902 and the 
Aglipayan Church. By touching on topics such as labor, trade, religiosity, 
nationalism, among others, the show pushes to invigorate a viewpoint that there 
should be more to an art exhibit than the manufacture of interior decor, quaint 
filipinism or detached formal play.

The show will open at 5:00 pm, Friday November 29, 2002, with cocktails and 
performances at The Edge Gallery,  UP Jorge Vargas Museum, Manuel Roxas Drive, 
UP Diliman Campus, Quezon City. It will run until 6 January, 2003. The Edge 
Gallery is open to the public, free of charge, Mondays to Sundays, 8:30 to 
11:30 am and 1:00 to 4:30 pm.
