Makati City, 20 – 23 February 2014


TAKSU participates in ART FAIR PHILIPPINES 2014 February 20-23 in Makati City featuring NORBERTO ROLDAN in a solo exhibition of recent paintings and assemblages.


Roldan’s work is rooted in social, political, and cultural commentary through the collection and assembly of found objects with image or text fragments. Often employing the material embodiments of various genres and themes in one collage, Roldan harnesses a poignant consideration of biography and history. His practice involves an intentional juxtaposition of objects, images, and texts as a means to debase historical certainty and propose new narratives.

Roldan was represented in three landmark surveys of Southeast Asian contemporary art:New Art from Southeast Asia 1992 by the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum in Fukuoka, Japan,Negotiating Home History and Nation: Two Decades of Contemporary Art in Southeast Asia 1991-2011 by the Singapore Art Museum in Singapore, and No Country: Contemporary Art For South/Southeast Asia at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and The Asia Society in Hong Kong (2013).


Roldan is currently artistic director of Green Papaya Art Projects (established 2000), an independent and artist-run initiative that supports collaboration and exchange amongst Asia Pacific and Filipino artists.
