CITATION / DERIVATION: A Tribute to Pablo Picasso
by Katrina Pallon & Buen Abrigo
26 SEPT : 8 NOV 2013
Opening reception with the artists: 26 September 2013, 6-9 PM
The artists through their works do not wish to make new statements about Pablo Picasso. One of the most iconic, prolific, and influential artists in the history of Western art, Picasso is one of the most documented and most exposed artists to have been graced a place in the history of art. Much has been shared by Picasso to the world in no less than five artistic periods spanning over seven decades, across some of the most dynamic points in history.
The project uses the word derivation in the context of its meaning in linguistics: the process of forming a new word based on another word, the original. In art, a parallel idea would be appropriation, but one can see from Katrina Pallon’s and Buen Abrigo’s works that “appropriation” is not all that appropriate. Their works are the products of a sort of citation–referring to a source, a borrowing of elements, used and fleshed out in methods they have owned artistically – to convey their own artistic messages.
CITATION / DERIVATION: A Tribute to Pablo Picasso will be on view at Altro Mondo at The Picasso (The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences, 119 L.P. Leviste St., Salcedo Village, Makati City) until November 1, 2013. For inquiries, please call (+632) 501 3270 to 71 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
