This event has ended.

Roberto Chabet (1937-2013) made a major contribution to the development of contemporary art in the Philippines from the 1960s onwards in a wide variety of roles, including artist, curator, founding museum director of the Cultural Center of the Philippines leader of the artist-run space “Shop6,” and university professor. He continues to have an influence even after his death in 2013 with the establishment of an online archive of his achievements at the Asia Art Archive in Hong Kong and the staging of a tribute exhibition at the Cultural Center of the Philippines in 2014. While his ideas on contemporary art have had an impact on people of different generations in the Philippines, it would be fair to say that he has yet to gain the recognition he deserves internationally. This exhibition highlights the entirety of Chabet’ s art practice, approaching it not only from the perspective of his artworks but from various angles.
