The Vargas Museum presents the third iteration of its Art History Series, a relay of exhibitions curated based on art historical methods. The series aims to bridge the gap between curatorship and art history, especially in line with the museum’s continuing efforts to reactivate its collection and situate it within contemporary social contexts. From its two iterations, which were based on thematic and monographic approaches, this third exhibition moves on to a diachronic curatorial approach. 
The exhibition at the 3F Galleries titled Republic, and which runs parallel with A Matter of Contemplation and Discontent, engages with the milieu of the Philippine Commonwealth government from 1934 to 1941. The exhibition presents archival materials from the Vargas collection in juxtaposition with works by Filipino contemporary artists Roberto Feleo, Michelle Dizon, Renan Ortiz, Stephanie Syjuco, Santiago Bose and Brenda Fajardo.
