…in the next two months, be sure to check out the Santiago Bose art exhibition at the Yuchengco Museum.
For the exhibition, titled Remix: Santiago Bose, more than thirty artists–writers, painters, poets and videographers–were invited to create artwork inspired by the work of the late artist Santiago Bose.
I was fortunate enough to be invited to take part in the exhibition thanks to my good friend (and Santiago’s daughter) Lille Bose, and I’m honored to be a part of it.
Each writer chose one of Santiago’s sketches and then wrote a short story that was inspired by the piece.
I picked this piece:
Each writer was then asked to take an excerpt from the story and write it out by hand. Here’s my handwritten excerpt:
The exhibition starts February 11th and runs through March 31st, so if you happen to be in the Philippines during that time (I know this is probably a long shot here) be sure to check it out.
Here’s the official press release:
Artist. Joker. Cultural provocateur.
Santiago Bose died in December 2002. After he died, it became apparent that Bose’s artistic influence spanned various fields of multimedia. In “Remix: Santiago Bose,” more than 30 artists that Bose inspired, influenced, challenged and mentored present their interpretation of his artwork and continue his legacy.
The opening of “Remix: Santiago Bose” is on Thursday, February 11th, 2010 at 6:30PM at the Yuchengco Museum, RCBC Plaza.
