Excerpt from the press release:
''Tutok Kargado' is an agitated dialogue between a post-modern community and the high modern collection of the Ateneo Art Gallery. 'Kargado' examines nationhood, modernism, critical self-recognition, political complexity, and proposes that art practice comes with an inseparable charge, a context, an implication that cannot be distilled away into absolute form but has to be grafted and manifest by and in such form to fully address the era it came from. The anxieties of Y2k08 – homogenizing globalisation, climate change, hegemony and extremism have prodded artists to either dissect contemporaneity or provide perishable cocoons of indifference. 'Tutok Kargado' chooses dissection.'
