    UPLB to stage first online art exhibit

     

    Everything, including the arts scene, is trying to establish presence on virtual space in this time of the new normal.

    In UPLB, the Office for Initiatives in Culture and the Arts (OICA) will open its first ever online art exhibit entitled “Endemicity 101” featuring the works of Filipina artists Kat Casapao and Karla Sajona-Sta. Cruz.

    This exhibit aims to help increase public awareness and inspire action on the possible risks of natural resources being endangered.

    The subjects of the artworks will focus on the hallmarks of biodiversity, such as birds, plants, trees, and flowers that are distinct to various regions in the country.

    The works of Casapao and Sajona-Sta. Cruz, rendered in various shades of acrylic and watercolor, will serve as a reminder of the rich diversity of the country’s flora and fauna that  has been threatened by natural and anthropogenic forces.

    Dr. Antonio Jesus A. Quilloy, UPLB’s 2019 Outstanding Artist and an associate professor at the College of Economics and Management, curated the art exhibition that may be viewed on the UPLB OICA’s Official Facebook Page.

    The actual exhibit is housed at the Sining Makiling Gallery at the DL Umali Hall, UPLB. (KEAraguas, with reports from OICA)

    UP to hold virtual commemoration of the struggleagainst Martial Law in UP Day of Remembrance 2020

    Celeste Ann C. Llaneta, UP Media and Public Relations Office

    On 21 September 1972, then President Ferdinand Marcos signed Proclamation No. 1081, placing the Philippines under Martial Law. This marked the beginning of a period of authoritarian rule that ravaged the nation’s democracy and economy, and saw a record number of human rights violations, such as extrajudicial killings and disappearances. Fourteen years later, the Filipino people succeeded in ousting the dictator with the words “Sobra Na, Tama Na! Oust Marcos! Lansagin ang diktadura!” as their battle cry.

    Now, 48 years after Marcos’ declaration of Martial Law, we once again revisit this dark period in our country’s history and honor the heroes who fought, struggled and gave their lives for the cause of freedom and justice, even as many of the same dark forces continue to plague our society today. Even as we face the seismic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we refresh our memory of the evils of dictatorship and renew our struggle with the battle cry, “Never again, never forget!”

    From September 21 to 22, the University of the Philippines System will hold its UP Day of Remembrance 2020, a virtual commemoration of the University’s collective memories of the events leading to and following the declaration of Martial Law from the 1970s to the mid-1980s.

    This year’s UP Day of Remembrance, titled “Dambana ng Gunita: Mga Hulagway ng Pagkamulat at Kabayanihan 1972-1986”, consists of two main activities: four webinars featuring UP alumni and faculty who fought during Martial Law sharing their experiences; and, an online exhibit to feature Martial Law narratives of resistance and hope that continue to resonate up to now.

    These online activities will be held across all eight UP constituent units, and will revolve around four themes: Hamon ng Batas Militar, focusing on the early years of clampdown on civil liberties and adapting to the situation with new forms of struggle; Detenido, Desparecido, a remembrance of the Marcos regime’s violation of human rights and cruelty through disregard of due process, indefinite imprisonment, torture, disappearances and killings; Sining at Panitik: Daluyan ng Tinig, recalling writers and artists who created new forms of expression, inspiring and mobilizing the masses for action against deception; and, Patungong People Power: Turning Points, on the events in the 1980s that became turning points which led to the end of the Marcos dictatorship.

    In pursuit of its tradition of struggle for academic freedom and democratic ideals, UP stood at the forefront of the resistance to Martial Law and the Marcos regime, contributing to this struggle many of its best and brightest. Now UP deems it proper to enshrine their names and struggles for younger and future generations of the University to emulate. It is for this reason that UP President Danilo L. Concepcion signed Proclamation No. 1 in 2018 declaring September 21 of every year as UP Day of Remembrance during which special lectures, meetings and ceremonies will be held across the UP System to commemorate UP’s participation and sacrifices in the struggle against dictatorship and tyranny.

    The UP Day of Remembrance 2020 is made all the more significant as the University commemorated in February this year the 50th anniversary of the First Quarter Storm, which led to the Diliman Commune and other watershed events prior to the declaration of Martial Law.

    The UP Day of Remembrance 2020 is open to all teachers, educators, scholars and Filipinos who wish to continue learning about our country’s history and who believe in the importance of upholding and defending basic freedoms, civil liberties and human rights.
