The Kuta Artist Group, in celebration of their 10th year anniversary, presents “Taeng Kalabaw” as a prequel showcase in part of a series of exhibitions laid out in retrospect of the group’s history and continued expansion. The show aims to be a repertoire of anecdotes telling the many narratives involved within the group, symbiotic of their rural identity. Coming from Rizal, members have spoken of the parallels between their will as artists and the Carabao trails eminent in the environment the grew up in. As grass fields slowly convert into commercial lands, something as taboo and ridiculed as Carabao waste acts as a symbol of heritage and perseverance.
Participating artists include Azriel Domingo, Carlmel Belda, Cezar Cardel Jr., Dzen Salinga, Elvira Dulce S. Santos, Eugene Dominguez, Franz Marion Vocalan, Gretel Balajadia, Isidro “Manong Jon” Santos, Jerline Sunga, John Loyd Benz De Leon, Jonas Arlegui, Mark Francisco, Rommel Gonzales and Silay Guilaran.
