Tagalog at Taga-ilog

at Taga-ilog
Roberto M. A. Robles
08 March to 27 April 2012
GF Lobby and West Wing Gallery

The Jorge B. Vargas Museum in cooperation with Galleria Duemila presents Tagalog at Taga-ilog by Roberto M. A. Robles which will open on March 8, 2012, Thursday, 4:00PM.

This exhibition focuses on the convergence between the museum's milieu and the artist's sculpture. The inspiration of this project is Saluysoy, Robles's retrospective held last year, which means "wellspring". Tagalog at Taga-ilog explores the resonance of the term through sculptures, maquettes, drawings and poetry in the wider discourse of identity and landscape.

Roberto M. A. Robles (b. 1957) graduated from the School of Music and Fine Arts of the University of the East with a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts. In 1995, he completed his Master of Fine Arts sculpture program majoring in stone carving under the tutelage of Prof. Hitoshi Itoh at the University of Tsukuba School of Art and Design. He was appointed Dean of the College of Fine Arts, University of the East in the same year upon returning to the Philippines. He has extensively exhibited locally and abroad in such venues as at the Pinaglabanan Gallery, Galleria Duemila, Tokyo Metropolitan Museum, and Ibaraki Museum of Modern Art and Kitano Museum Art Movement. He received an Asian Artist Fellowship at the 11th Annual Freeman Foundation Vermont Studio Center, USA in 2004. Robles held his 30 year retrospective "Saluysoy" at the Ateneo Art Gallery in 2011.

Tagalog at Taga-ilog will run until 27 April 2012. For more information, please contact Vargas Museum at +632 928-1927 (direct line), +63 981-8500 loc. 4024 (UP trunkline), +63 928-1925 (fax) or send an e-mail to You may also check our website at or like us at for more information.
