to undertake research and documentation on contemporary art activities and artists in the Philippines
With ACC grantee Maria Carina Lim Evangelista as a contributing author, this is the first monograph on the life and art of Roberto Chabet (1937 – 2013), also an ACC grantee. Arguably the most important Filipino artist, curator and teacher of the postwar generation, Chabet laid the foundations of contemporary art in the Philippines with his conceptual works that critiqued the rigid conventions of Modernism.
