TutoK Kasaysayang

TutoK presents KASAYSAYANG:
a two-part exhibit on history

The artists' initiative TutoK presents "Kasaysayang, " its seventh exhibit in a two-part exhibit at two Makati venues this November.

After setting its focus on human rights issues in a series of exhibits last year and in early 2007, TutoK takes a provocative look at the past as it continues to the present. "Kasaysayang" is a play on what history as a word evokes, eliciting on one hand, a sense of misgiving, but also looks forward and commits to bring history forward into new meanings, functions and actions.

"Kasaysayang" is curated by Noel Soler Cuizon, and features past and recent works by over 180 artists and collectives who have been supporting TutoK in the past two years. Through this exhibition, TutoK hopes to generate funding to fuel more collaborative efforts next year - workshops, talks and other events that will further promote artists' initiatives and advocacies.

The first part, Takdang Aralin - Unang Yugto will open on November 17, 7:00pm at the Artspace of Glorietta 4, Ayala Center, Makati City, and may be viewed during mall hours until November 27.

The second part, Balik-Aral, Ikalawang Yugto will open on the 2nd Anniversary of TutoK, November 30, 7:00pm at the Alab Art Space of the Intellectual Property Philippines, 351 Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue, Makati City, and may be viewed 9:00am-6:00pm until January 11, 2008.

A forum on art, history, and intellectual property rights will be the exhibit's culminating activity at the Alab Art Space on Friday, January 11, 2008 from 2:00-5:00pm. The exhibit and its corresponding activities are open and free to the public.
