Beyond Frame: Philippine Photomedia

Beyond Frame: Philippine Photomedia
28 October - 21 November 2008
UTS Gallery
Level 4, 702 Harris Street
Ultimo Sydney, NSW Australia

Twelve artists push the boundaries of traditional photography and its derivatives moving beyond the frame as a 'filter' to local nuances, historic anchors and site-specificity. This is an astute picture of Philippine contemporary art now.

The first exhibition of Philippine photography and photomedia to be presented in Australia will open at Sydney's UTS Gallery 28 October from 6 - 8 pm. Curated by Gina Fairley, this exhibition will travel the work of twelve artists that push the boundaries of medium and a prescribed imaging of the Philippines in new expressions from video installation, digital banners, site-specific wall-drawing and a kind of third world manipulation of traditional photography.

Featured in the show are:

Poklong Anading **
Ringo Bunoan **
Mario Co **
Lena Cobangbang **
Romina A. Diaz
Christina Dy *
Lani Maestro
Gina Osterloh *
Rachel Rillo *
Steve Tirona **
Norberto Roldan
Gerardo Tan
Tony Twigg

* Silverlens/SLab Represented Artists
** Silverlens Exhibiting Artists

OPENING: Tuesday 28 October from 6 - 8pm
UTS Gallery - Level 4, 701 Harris Street, Ultimo, Sydney

Christina Dy will be creating Running with Scissors (Before), a wall-based work in-situ. A performative work followed by a conversation between the curator and the artist will take place on Friday, 31 October from 1pm
