Archiving Roberto Chabet
1 / 4

This leaflet accompanies the exhibition of the same title held at Jorge B. Vargas Museum, University of Philippines in 2009.  With artist's biography and list of works.  The following is an excerpt from the leaflet.  

'Archiving Roberto Chabet invites reflection on how we can represent the fractured and ephemeral nature of conceptual art from the point of view of now, nearly 50 years since it began.  It is a fitting homage to Chabet, who, despite his tremendous influence has maintained a strategic distance from the operations of the art world.  With this ordering of scavenged objects and data, Bunoan underscores Chabet's immense contribution to Philippine art while performing a critical statement on the systems and politics that govern our culture, memory and history.'
