Metropolitan Museum of Manila: Vargas Museum Collection at the MET

image.jpegFascination with Filipiniana: The Vargas Museum Collection
Drawing reference from the collection’s roots, Fascination with Filipiniana: The Vargas Museum Collection examines the artworks and archives that comprise the Vargas Museum collection, and Jorge B. Vargas’ place in the history of Philippine art and culture. Fascination, a translation of his compound fondly called Kawilihan, not only alludes to Vargas’ instinct, habit and passion for collecting, but also includes the word “nation,” a discourse relevant to him at a time when he was both a government official and a collector.

In the Wake of War and the Modern: Manila, 1941 to 1961
In the Wake of War and the Modern: Manila, 1941 to 1961 explores how the collections of the Vargas Museum and the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas interconnect, and the historical context that surrounds their respective formations. Framed by the years when Vargas was appointed Mayor of Manila, until the time when he became Regent of the University of the Philippines, the period also marks the emergence of both the modern and the so-called “Mabini Art” from Manila before, during, and after the Pacific War.
