Artists, curators, and art managers navigate a whole ecosystem of relationships with other agents, stakeholders, and sometimes, whole institutions. As we go about balancing often multiple roles and personal ethics, our ways of working may at times lead to unavoidable frictions and other challenges that are part of the dynamic process of partnership. Shared objectives require us to negotiate, compromise and deal with various tensions while at the same time care for our own personal goals and vision. How do we go about managing and building these hopefully symbiotic exchanges, and how does the sector take care of individuals in this challenging period?

This discussion will bring together artists, art managers, and gallerists to discuss the relationships between various stakeholders in the artworld in different places in the Philippines, the current systems of collaborations as well as the challenges it entails.

This event is FREE and OPEN to the public. Register here to tune in on Zoom or click 'going' in our event page to be notified once we go live!

'Taking Care of Ourselves' is the first installment of ART AND COMMUNITY, a series of dialogues that examine and explore the ecology of relationships within the Philippine artworld and its ties to society.

This webinar is organized by Metropolitan Museum of Manila and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts through the Philippine Arts in Venice Biennale (PAVB).
