This came in the mail today (from Barbara Jane Reyes): “Planting Rice is an alternative platform aimed at fostering the rise of cross-pollination among artistic communities. It distributes information on vital exhibitions, events, places and influences by art professionals in Southeast Asia, Australia, the United States and Europe who maintain networks and crossovers in the Philippines.
“This site generates a resource of writings on current discussions and collaborations that are developing beyond available publications or mainstream spaces. Additionally it recovers an archive relevant to the present climate of cultural interchanges in contemporary art.
“Planting Rice is the curatorial banner of Lian Ladia and Sidd Perez”
