In the 1990s, Elmer Borlongan, Emmanuel Garibay and Mark Justiniani were part of several artist collectives : ABAY (Artista ng Bayan), Salingpusa and Sanggawa. These groups explored the collaborative process in art making and their subjects reflected the political and social conditions of the times. Since then they have gone on to forge very successful individual careers but 25 years later, they have come together again to do a project for Art Fair Philippines. This talk will give audiences an insight into past and current practices.
