Vargas Museum February 2015

I went to the University of the Philippines Diliman to check this month’s Vargas Museum exhibit.

Exhibits at the lobby are always political in nature. I do not like that very much because it has already been done several times. I totally understand that culture includes politics, but artworks for a cause just do not appeal to me. I prefer art with meaning I can appreciate without neglected aesthetics.

Politically-charged art bore me, but I like this one.

On the table are relics of decades past.

Artworks on museums are usually off-limits to the hands of the viewers. I love how people are allowed to touch this one.

The highlight of this month’s exhibit are the street photographs.

The exhibits this month are worth checking out. Drop by the museum and just ignore the redundant political art.

Art is philosophy n’est-ces pas?
