With ACC grantee Maria Carina Lim Evangelista as a contributing author, this is the first monograph on the life and art of Roberto Chabet (1937 - 2013), also an ACC grantee.

Arguably the most important Filipino artist, curator and teacher of the postwar generation, Chabet laid the foundations of contemporary art in the Philippines with his conceptual works that critiqued the rigid conventions of Modernism.

Hong Kong::Works by Roberto Chabet : 09.09.2015 - 09.30.2015

The showcase exhibition is comprised of a series of collages, drawings and an installation by artist Roberto Chabet (1937 - 2013). Chabet, widely known as the Father of Philippine Conceptual Art, established an alternative paradigm beyond the prevalent art movements such as modernist abstraction and social realism during the 60s and 70s in the Philippines and significantly influenced the contemporary generation of Filipino artists, as suggested in works such as To Be Continued (2010), which consists of 10 plywood panels and a neon sign; the work was made by Chabet's students under his instruction to create colors by mixing red, blue and yellow paint (the emblematic colors of modernism).

Roberto Chabet and 51 artists
"Complete & Unabridged, Part II", which opens at Osage Kwun Tong on 4 March ("Part I" opened in Singapore at ICAS on 17 February), is a major exhibition of over 50 contemporary artists from the Philippines, all of whom studied with or were mentored by Roberto Chabet at the University of the Philippines, College of Fine Arts, or at key artist-run spaces in Manila.
Reflecting the diversity of interests and practices in Philippine art today, they are connected by a continuing discussion on alternative forms and ways of thinking about art - issues that Chabet has consistently raised through his own art, his curated exhibitions and teachings.
"Chabet in Three and Four Dimensions" is a forum held in conjunction with the series of four exhibitions centred on pioneering Filipino artist Roberto Chabet, presented by the Osage Art Foundation and the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore. Since his first exhibition in 1961, Chabet has been instrumental in establishing the foundations for contemporary practice in the Philippines. His works, ranging from painting, drawing, collage, sculpture to installation, resist easy categorisation.
Please join us as exhibition curators Gary-Ross Pastrana, Ringo Bunoan and Isabel Ching discuss the different dimensions of Chabet's art practice, and Bangkok curator Ark Fongsmut adds his perspective on conceptual art practices in Thailand.
Artists: Roberto Chabet

"What does it all matter, as long as the wounds fit the arrows? a variation of Franz Kafka's entry in his diary, serves as a cryptic title for a sprawling group exhibition at the Cultural Center of the Philippines in memory of pioneering Filipino artist, teacher, curator, and CCP's founding museum director Roberto Chabet (1937-2013). Hailed as the father of Philippine conceptual art, Chabet is recognized for introducing an alternative view of art in the country in the 60s with his distinct use of everyday common materials that examined the nature of art.
features a wide range of works by 75 contemporary Filipino artists who were mentored by Chabet mainly at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts, where he taught from 1971-2002. The exhibition charts the multiple trajectories that emerged from his classroom. Similar to Chabet's work, it purposefully resists a singular linear methodology or an easy summation; rather it proposes an open constellation of diverse forms, themes, and styles that are ostensibly messy, disordered, and conflicting yet still in alignment with one another.

In the local scene, Roberto Chabet's (1937- 2013) lifetime work also challenged the different perceptions of art and addressed the rigid notions of what "art" is.
