This is a video recording of the forum 'Chabet in Three and Four Dimensions' on 5 March 2011 at Osage Kwun Tong, Hong Kong. It was held in conjunction with the series of four exhibitions centred on pioneering Filipino artist Roberto Chabet, presented by the Osage Art Foundation and the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore. Since his first exhibition in 1961, Chabet has been instrumental in establishing the foundations for contemporary practice in the Philippines. His works, ranging from painting, drawing, collage, sculpture to installation, resist easy categorisation.
Exhibition curators Gary-Ross Pastrana, Ringo Bunoan and Isabel Ching discuss the different dimensions of Chabet's art practice, and Bangkok curator Ark Fongsmut adds his perspective on conceptual art practices in Thailand. Hong Kong-based writer and critic John Batten acts as a respondent, and Charles Merewether and Lee Weng Choy moderate the session and following discussion.
