Modes of Impact: Selections from the Ateneo Art Gallery Collection of Video Art
Very little has been written about video artworks in the Philippines and the Ateneo Art Gallery aims to broaden the awareness and patronage of these kinds of works through its initial acquisition of video art since 2000.
Four videos by artists Kiri Dalena, Manny Montelibano, Mark Salvatus, and Maria Taniguchi respectively, were selected for this exhibition to provide a snapshot of the socio-economic and political landscape of the Philippines.
In the catalog notes, curator Clarissa Chikiamco addresses concerns and problems regarding the acquisition, collection, care, responsibility, storage, and re-installation of video art.
