ATENEO ART GALLERY
Ateneo de Manila University
Loyola Heights, Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines 1108
As the only museum in the country dedicated to the collection, display and
interpretation of modern Philippine art, the Ateneo Art Gallery is poised to
engage with the richness and diversity of the art of our time.
As a university art museum, it seeks to animate cultural life on campus and
serve as an art resource for students as well as the general public.
The Gallery seeks to promote the excellence of contemporary Philippine visual
expression by providing a forum where various perspectives can meet. It does
this unmindful of the canons, pantheons or histories that commonly implicate
and complicate the relationships between and among artists and their works.
DECODE is an exhibit that exists in two seperate but interconnected realities:
the physical and the virtual. It seeks to review what has been done and to
present what might be coming in the future of digital art in the country. The
first, largest and most comprehensive show of its kind to be mounted in a major
Philippine museum, DECODE hopes to let artists express themselves in the
electronic arts. In this light, the exhibit seeks to be a cradle for artists
who are both deft in technology and in the arts.
DECODE is divided into two components: a physical installation and an exhibit
on the Internet. This is a call for the latter. However, if you wish to do a
physical installation, please contact us.
There will be a non-conventional public terminal for users to explore the
virtual / online exhibition in the physical space of the Gallery.
The following are the categories for the online exhibition:
Networked - aesthetic software, hardware and/or interfaces that treat the
network as its own. Included here are web designs that seek to redefine the
traditional web experience.
Interactive - interactive software art where there is an output for every
Visual Language - digital video and computer graphics inclusive of generative
systems and non-interactive software art.
Digital Music - electronically produced music through a series of algorithms
or digital instruments.
Please note that works for this component of DECODE will be presented online.
To ensure full user experience, it is highly recommended that entries be
optimized for the web.
Should you be interested in doing a physical installation, please contact us
on or before April 25, 2003.
Performances of electronic aesthetics may be proposed. These performances may
be scheduled during the duration of the exhibit.
