KALOY OLAVIDES x and m
CURATED BY ROBERTO CHABET

OPENING 7:00 PM, AUGUST 31 (FRIDAY) 2007
GREEN PAPAYA ART PROJECTS
EXHIBITION UNTIL SEPTEMBER 22 / GALLERY HOURS: 6-10 PM TUESDAY-SATURDAY

Subverting the process of academic painting, the artist breaks away from the confines of a bordered canvas and extends his painting by incorporating the surrounding spaces around the artwork, from the wall to another artwork to the opposite ends of the gallery, into the artwork itself.

x and m pushes further by manipulating different mass media such as print materials and video, and transform them into a hybrid medium, thereby exhibiting a process of manipulating the manipulator, and questioning the power of manipulation and the persona of the manipulator.

Maybe because I was spoiled in college to lots of modern and conceptual art, that its difficult for me to get into anything else but that. And thats what I THINK.

Been There: The Taste Asia Blogger Food Fest

I have kept my distance from the blogger scene, the meetups, and anything else that would remind me that I should have probably considered getting into this possible revenue-stream source, since I’ve been keeping web journals for about 6 years already, blah blah blah, but the promise of free food got me.

So, I was at the Taste Asia Blogger Food Fest last night, at the SM Mall of Asia, where 100++ bloggers converged, and were fed generously by SM Hypermart’s Taste Asia.
