Witness the spectacular union of art and literature at Chromatext Rebooted
If you like berlin-artparasites, you'll love Chromatext Rebooted.
(SPOT.ph) Have you ever wondered why your Facebook friends always share berlin-artparasites posts, or why people like re-posting quotes printed over beautiful images? That's because putting art and literature together produces spectacular results—and that’s exactly what we saw in Chromatext Rebooted—a showcase of over a hundred works that are based on or incorporate literature, as well as masterpieces by poets and writers. The exhibit is on view at the Bulwagang Juan Luna of the Cultural Center of the Philippines until January 17, 2016.
Chromatext Rebooted is co-curated by Jean Marie Syjuco and Krip Yuson. The show features paintings, installations, digital works, and sculptures presented with words, poetry, or prose, some the results of collaboration between artists and writers.
