This groundbreaking volume presents the first well-researched overview ofthe Philippine contemporary arts scene, inviting the reader to discover aroundtwo dozen artists who are about to take the Western art market by storm.Each is featured with an outline of his ideas and techniques, photographs ofmajor works, and a portrait. The curator Norman Crisologo and the journalistand editor of a culture magazine Erwin Romulo have contributed an extensiveessay in which they lay the foundations for a discussion of where contemporaryPhilippine art stands and explore its relations to tradition and religion, filmnoir, vernacular imageries, and urban culture.
