documentation of PASSAGE, first solo exhibition of Tad Ermitano, presented by End Frame Video Art Project 3: Present

I would like to share with everyone documentation (photo documentation above, video documentation below) of the first exhibition under End Frame Video Art Project 3: Present, a series of solo exhibitions of artists presenting new video work from 2011 to 2012 which I'm curating and organizing for Visual Pond.

The exhibition, PASSAGE, is the first solo exhibition of Tad Ermitano, an artist who joined both End Frame 2006 and End Frame II in 2007 when it was still in its open-call selection-committee format. The reformatted End Frame now brings the project to a single curatorial vision, which I had discussed and posted about last month.

I will edit this post to discuss more on Passage later. Click play below to view the video documentation.

Book launch! The Life & Art of Lee Aguinaldo

We just launched The Life & Art of Lee Aguinaldo this evening!

Putting a picture here of my cocurator/coauthor Boots Herrera and I near the end of the evening - posing with our book and emulating Lee's self-portrait (which emulates Albert Einstein's iconic photograph). All these variations - how fitting! Lee would love this photo as much as Boots and I do.

Last 2 days now to catch the Ateneo Art Gallery 50th anniversary exhibition, Lee Aguinaldo: In Retrospect.
