PRESS RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

10TH VIVA EXCON PRESENTS “USWAG LAMBIGIT BISAYA” AT SM CITY CEBU


Now on its 20th year, the Visayan Islands Visual Artists Exhibition Convention (VIVA ExCon) is a coming together of visual artists from all over the Visayas for three days of exhibitions, seminars, interactive projects, performances, workshops, and art congresses to help develop the Visayan artist to be the best of their respective area of expertise. Sponsored by the National Commission for Culture of the Arts, this year’s 10th holding of VIVA ExCon will be held on Cebu city on November 27-29, 2008, and is organized and managed by Pusod, the Open Organization of Cebu Visual Artists, Inc. Additional sponsors include: SM City Cebu, Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort, the University of the Philippines Cebu College, the University of San Carlos – College of Architecture and Fine Arts, Pow! Designs, and the City Government of Cebu.

Among the most significant aspects of the 10th VIVA ExCon will be the exhibition titled “Uswag Lambigit Bisaya!” To be held at the Trade Hall A, 4th Floor, SM City Cebu, “Uswag Lambigit Bisaya!” is a curated exhibition concept focused on the notion and practice of artistic collaboration. It is composed of two Visayan words that literally mean ‘move forward’ and ‘collaborate’. As an innovation to the VIVA Ex-Con, the participant’s exhibition will present carefully planned works done in collaboration at a predetermined site. The artists or groups will be given a specific area to work with and can even utilize the entire floor and wall area through paintings, sculptures, and mixed-media installations.

Artwork proposals for the exhibition will be accepted on a grouped basis, with at least two to at most five artists collaborating together to submit a single artwork that may be executed and installed in the premises of the exhibition, the CebuTrade Hall of SM City Cebu. The organizers of the exhibition, along with curator Dr. Reuben Ramas Cañete of the UP Department of Art Studies made the rounds to the various islands and cities of the Visayas from late-August to October 2008 to spread the news on this concept, distribute the required forms, and informed the artists of their submission of exhibition concepts, which must be approved before they can mount their arworks at the venue.

The Artwork Proposals that were accepted into “Uswag Lambigit Bisaya!” adhere to the following regulations:
-All artist proponents must fill up and submit to the Organizing Committee the official Application Form for “Uswag Lambigit Bisaya!” Proposals that did not fill up and submit using the official Application Form will not be entertained;

- Can be executed using any medium or combination of media;
- All materials for the collaborative artwork must be sourced by the artist proponents;
- Accepted proposals must be executed and/or installed by the artist proponents. The Organizing Committee will assist in the installation of the artworks;
- Executed proposals must follow the prepared design concept as executed in their submitted Application Form;
- Artist proponents must ensure that their installed artworks do not pose imminent physical and/or chemical hazards that will endanger the safety of visitors and viewers.
-Ingress of approved artwork proposals will be on Wednesday, November 26, from 9 AM to 8 PM, at the Cebu Trade Hall, 4th Floor, SM City Cebu, Cebu City.
