Hyperallergic blogger explores contemporary Philippine art and takes residency at Green Papaya Art Projects




An Xiao Mina recently launched a new series on Hyperallergic based on the “contemporary art and technology scene” in the Philippines. Her journey begins with a month’s writing residency at Green Papaya Arts Projects.

Aside from the residency program, Xiao is going to be working on several projects, as is quoted below:
I’ll be bouncing around Manila in search of good art and good conversations with the art scene here, from artists to curators to archivists…. But my focus will be the Philippines, and my residency project will be centred around exploring the Philippine contemporary art and technology scene. A world leader in social media, the country naturally gravitates toward interesting uses of technology and communications tools…. I’ll be writing about most of it here on Hyperallergic. Then, on 17 December, I’ll be giving a talk at the Ayala Museum as part of the Fete Dela WSK art and music festival, which focuses on the diverse range of artistic activities in the context of digital culture in Southeast Asia.
Hyperallergic is a US-based art “blogazine” with an editorial focus on radical thinking in the international art world.
So far, Xiao has written a post on the Ateneo Art Gallery and its exhibition of the works of Roberto Chabet, arguably the father of Philippine conceptual art, and on Jose Alain Austria, a Filipino artist whose work is influenced by a dialogue between Christianity and Buddhism. Alternatively, you can view a list of her posts on Hyperallergic.

For her residency, An Xiao Mina completed an article on the "Art Village: A Year in Caochangdi"
