Cabanatuan-based artist Gromyko Semper curates the exhibition, while New Zealand-based writer, poet, critic, curator and art historian Andrew Paul Wood writes the “Endangered Visions’” exhibition note.
“Endangered Visions serves one major purpose: as an analogy of the possibilities, communications and translations inherent in the way imagery is manipulated, transmitted, unconsciously inherited and reiterated. Despite the geographical distance involved, these rare and vulnerable visions converge here out of some Jungian collective reservoir of archetypal images that every human being has access to,” Wood writes.
"Endangered Visions," a 41-artist exhibit curated by Cabanatuan-based artist Gromyko Semper, will be showcasing interpretations of rich mindscapes from Oct. 15 to 19 at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Premier, as part of the ManilART 2014 Art Fair.
Now on its sixth run, the annual art fair aims to diversify through this year’s visual spread themed “Crossing Borders”. ManilArt 2014 also continues to foster solidarity between the private and public sectors by bridging the two in its lineup of events, which shall run from October 16 to 19.
The Super Gathering

From the Gallerie Pierre in Paris where La Peinture Surrealiste, the very first exhibition of Surrealism as visual arts, was held in 1925, all the wanton way to the SMX Convention Center in Taguig, Metro Manila where an ambitiously curated art show, Endangered Visions, becomes part of the Manila Art Fair in October 2014, it’ll be a surreptitious span of nearly 90 years.
Roughly a century it has been, and then some, since Guillaume Apollinaire coined the word that would turn up to become a surrogate for reality in creativity, in fact even surpass what was the established norm at the time.
