vMeme Contemporary Art Gallery invites everyone to Uneasy Peace, an online solo show by Eloisa May P. Hernandez, who marks her return to exhibition after a number of years. Consisting of 40 photographs of the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman campus, where Hernandez lives and works, Uneasy Peace navigates the tension occasioned by the enduring silence and emptiness of familiar spaces—streets, school buildings, sites of public art—where people, prior to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, once gathered as a matter of course and long to gather in again.
The show runs from 18 December 2020 to 24 January 2021, and may be accessed via the vMeme website (http://www.vmemecontemporary.com).
Certain photographs in the exhibition are to be reproduced in calendars and other merchandise. The proceeds from the sale of such merchandise will be donated to Art Mobile Relief Kitchen, a volunteer group of artists and cultural workers that endeavors to feed the hungry in times of distress.
Hernandez is Professor at the Department of Art Studies, College of Arts and Letters, UP Diliman, where she teaches courses in art history, film studies, popular culture, and gender issues.
vMeme promotes contemporary Philippine art and various projects of artists-advocates.
