Nominations Now Open for the 2010 Ateneo Art Awards: Shattering States

On its fiftieth anniversary, the Ateneo Art Gallery announces that "Shattering States" has been selected as the theme of this year's Ateneo Art Awards, in response to the museum’s pioneering efforts in championing the cause of modernism in the country.

Traversing the range and scale of art practice, the 2010 edition of the Awards actively underscores the transgressive nature of artists, and resists the tendency to nurture ideas of stasis or permanence that usually accompany milestone celebrations. Ceaselessly challenging traditional media forms, this year presents an explosive array of artists whose works in one way or another hybridize manifestations that delineate and define the cutting edge.

Beyond the parameters of the object and its creator, "Shattering States" is also an ongoing reflection about time and place: a mental mapping of links that connect local and global concerns. As Philippine society finds itself yet again at the crossroads, art ultimately harnesses and realizes the potential of the imagination to create a wishing space that will
effectuate lasting change.

The Ateneo Art Awards are given to Filipino visual artists below the age of 36 foro utstanding works in an exhibition between 2 May 2009 and 1 May 2010. Nominations are accepted from visual artists, curators, museum and gallery directors, members of the present and former juries, art educators and art writers. Nomination forms are available at the Ateneo Art Gallery , Ateneo de Manila University, Katipunan Avenue , Loyola Heights , Quezon City; at Casa Gorodo Museum, Cebu City; or from the website http://gallery.

All nominations must be received at the Ateneo Art Gallery before 5 pm on 31 May 2010. For more information, please contact Ian Carlo Jaucian at +6324266488 or mobile +639178878956 or Exhibition of the works of the artists short-listed for the Awards will be at the Grand Atrium of the Shangri-la Plaza Mall, Shaw Blvd , Mandaluyong City from 6 August - 16 August 2010.
