We are pleased to announce a call for submissions to CHROMATEXT REBOOTED, a visual arts show scheduled to open sometime in November 2015 at the Main Gallery of the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
This group show will involve artworks based on, coupled with, or related to words/poems/prose, or any kind of visual art executed by poets/writers, including abstract, sculptural, conceptual and digital works.
The “Chromatext” series started in the early 1980s with “Chromatext 1” and “Chromatext 2” — both mounted at the Pinaglabanan Galleries in San Juan, as curated and participated in by members of PLAC or the Philippine Literary Arts Council.
In January 2007, “Chromatext Reloaded” was displayed at the CCP Main Gallery. It included works by a total of 87 poet-friends and artist-friends of PLAC from here and abroad, and enjoyed strong viewership, especially among littérateurs and students, all throughout its six-week run.
CHROMATEXT REBOOTED will be co-curated by Jean Marie Syjuco and Alfred A. Yuson. Poets and writers are enjoined to express their intent to participate in this exhibit by contacting either of the co-curators, and sending preliminary information on their intended submissions.
Details are to be announced later, through direct, private correspondence.
