3rd Part of Exhibit Series on Political Killings Slated at UP

The third part of Perspektiba, a series of exhibits on political killings by the artists’ group Tutok Karapatan (TutoK), has been scheduled for Feb. 20-March 8, 2007 at the Faculty Center Galleries and Hardin ng mga Diwata, University of the Philippines (UP) in Diliman, Quezon City.

TutoK had wrapped up early December its successful exhibit on the same theme, dubbed Perspektiba 1, at the Beato Angelico Gallery of the University of Santo Tomas. Persektiba 2, meanwhile, ran Jan. 9-23 at the Amrhein Gallery, St. Scholastica’s College.

Perspektiba 3 will open at 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 20. The opening will be held simultaneously with a launch of the national catalogue of SUNGDU-AN 3: Making The Local,
a project of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) National Committee on Visual Arts.

Perspektiba 3 is expected to be the biggest in the three-part series of exhibits – featuring works by Anting Anting, Antipas Delotavo, Benjie Torrado Cabrera, Benjo Elayda, Boy Dominguez, Claro Ramirez, Cos Zicarelli, Dennis Gonzales, Don Dalmacion, Don Salubayba, Ed Manalo, Iggy Rodriguez, Jason Montinola, Jason Moss, Jef Carnay, Jeho Bitancor, Jose Tence Ruiz, Jun Cruz Reyes, Leonard Aguinaldo, Lia Tayag Torralba, Lindslee, Lito Mondejar, Lynard Paras, Maan de Loyola, Mark Ramsel Salvatus III, Marlon Reyes, Mervy Pueblo, New World Disorder, Niño Tagaro, Pampanga Arts Guild, Tatong Recheta Torres, UGATLahi, Vivian Limpin, Wesley Valenzuela, Wire Tuazon, and Yko Umadhay III.

As part of Perspektiba 3, a forum and live action performances will be held on Feb. 27 and March 1, respectively.

The forum will be held 2:30-5:30 p.m. on Feb. 27 at the C.M. Recto Hall, with Dr. Alice Guillermo and Dr. Felipe M. de Leon, Jr. as speakers.

The live action, which will be held 2:30-5:30 p.m. on March 1, will feature performances by Jef Carnay, Jeho Bitancor, Noel Pama, UGATLahi, and Wire Tuazon.

TutoK was formed in late 2005 after an artists’ workshop in Quezon City on women, art and healing, as a response to what the participants described as the “deteriorating” human rights situation in the country.

Based on data from Karapatan (Alliance for the Advancement of People’s Rights), there have been more than 800 victims of extrajudicial killings from January 2001 – when President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo assumed power through a popular revolt – to February 2006.

Meanwhile, Karapatan has recorded more than 200 cases of forced disappearances for the same period.
