"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.

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).

In 2011, Mr. Roberto Chabet, one of the Philippines¡¦ most influential contemporary artists, will be celebrating fifty years of his professional practice as an artist, curator and teacher. OAF, together with the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, LASALLE College of the Arts (ICAS), and King Kong Art Projects Unlimited are presenting a series of exhibitions of works by Chabet and over 80 acclaimed and emerging Filipino artists whom he has taught and mentored.

The exhibitions ¡X entitled, ¡§To Be Continued¡¨, ¡§Intermediate Geography¡¨ and ¡§Complete & Unabridged, Parts I and II¡¨¡X will offer viewers a chance to appreciate and examine Chabet¡¦s work and legacy. 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, and installation, resist easy categorisation. Using mostly ordinary and found material, he takes an inclusive approach to art, searching for the sublime not just in abstract ideas but also in the immediacy of the quotidian and the commonplace. Beyond the significance of his artistic practice, these exhibitions will also explore Chabet¡¦s influence as a curator and educator.
The solo exhibition ¡§To Be Continued¡¨ is a landmark survey exhibition of Chabet¡¦s plywood works from 1984 to the present. In these works, Chabet utilizes his signature material ¡V store-bought plywood boards. It is a material, which has become not only the surface and support of his paintings and installations, but to a large extent its subject matter and content.
...
For the group exhibitions in Singapore and Hong Kong ¡§Complete & Unabridged, Parts I and II¡¨, a wide range of works by Chabet and his former students will be featured. This two-part exhibition aims to highlight the role of Chabet as a mentor and influence to generations of Filipino artists, mainly from the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts, where he taught for over three decades. Reflecting the diversity of interests and practices in contemporary Philippine art today, the works in these exhibitions are connected by a continuing discussion on alternative forms and ways of thinking about art, which Chabet has consistently raised through his own art, curated exhibitions and teachings.
