Zero In 7: Keeping the Faith: Acts of Mediation

November 13, 2008 to April 4, 2009

Curated by Eileen Legaspi-Ramirez and Claro Ramirez

The exhibited works, indicative of tumult, transition, and stress, included Benedicto Cabrera’s Soldiers, Juan Luna’s España y Filipinas, Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo’s La derrota de Limahong, El asesinato del Gobernardor Bustamante y su hijo, La barca de Aqueronte, Per pacem et libertatem, and Ante la tumba del jefe. Referencing this instability persuaded us to look at the negotiations that occurred in gestures of propitiation, defiance, inveigling, carousing, and so on. The exhibition allowed us to peer into seminal documents that enabled Filipinos to emerge from the black hole of colonial mis-representation. Keeping the Faith also juxtaposed its trove alongside contemporary sculptures by Agnes Arellano and Kiri Dalena and documentary films by Egay Navarro and Rica Concepcion.
