The Tile Project: Destination, the World

Forum on Collaborative Art Practice, Aug. 17 CCP MKP

The Tile Project: Destination, the World brings over 100 artists from 40 countries together in setting up 22 public art installations exploring informal routes for global cooperation through art made out of portable and accessible materials.

Each of the installations have or are being constructed out of a plurality of materials (ceramics, digital imagery, assemblage, painting) in a portable, square, tile-like format. For the Philippines, CCP Thirteen Artists Awardee Claro Ramirez undertakes a kinetic installation made out of the component tiles sited at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Second Level Staircase Landing Area.

To mark this installation’s first public viewing, a modest public forum called Synch: Forum on Collaborative Practices will be undertaken at the CCP Multi-Purpose Hall, August 17, 1-3 pm. This informal roundtable event brings together Filipino artists from various disciplines and persuasions to come and share experiences about working outside the single author/auteur/artist framework. Coming from a diverse range of engagements in visual arts, performance, film, video, new media, music, and art organizing, the discussion is expected to revolve around notions of control, process, and interaction in relation to concept, and realization of intended reception.

Roundtable participants include Cynthia Alexander (music), Rica Arevalo (film), Yason Banal (performance/alternative spaces/art organizing), Fatima Lasay (new media) and Ramirez (visual arts/installation) who will be sharing about their specific experiences in collaboration. An open forum follows their presentations.

The installation is Transcultural Exchange’s donation to the Cultural Center of the Philippines visual art collection. The Tile Project is made possible by the support of distinguished organizations such as the United Nations Educational, Science and Cultural Organization, the Asian Cultural Council, the Open Society Institute (Soros Foundations Network), and locally through El Kapitan Premium Epoxy.

About us

Best described as a Murakami detox support group, we're all fans of the quirkily brilliant Japanese author, Haruki Murakami, and writing about such things as films we've seen recently and books we're reading (not to mention meandering musings on the man's work, of course) helps us to pass time while waiting for the next book from Haruki-baby.
