Meanwhile, “To Be Continued” at LASALLE College of the Arts, is the first exhibition outside of the Philippines of the works of Roberto Chabet, arguably the most influential Filipino conceptual artist. The exhibit features the plywood paintings and installations of Chabet since 1984, including his ground breaking trilogy from the 1980s: “Russian Paintings,” “House Paintings,” and “Cargo and Decoy.”
“To Be Continued” will be followed in February by “Complete & Unabridged I,” also at LASALLE, which will showcase the works of more than 30 Filipino artists mentored and influenced by Chabet. The two events are part of 15 exhibits to be staged from 2011 to 2012 in commemoration of 50 years of Chabet’s practice as an artist, teacher and curator, which will include two shows in Hong Kong.
