Artists’ Talk on Performance Art: Jeff Carnay and Myra Beltran

On September 11, 2010, The Lopez Memorial Museum and Library will be having its first Artist’s Talk on performance art featuring Jeffrey Carnay and Myra Beltran.

Carnay’s visual and performance works are known in the local and in the international traditional and alternative spaces of the art world. He is a member of the core committee of TutoK artists initiative, and of the NeWorlDisorder, an open, collaborative and loose multimedia art initiative. He was the convener of “Bulong”, a night of poetry, songs and other performances and is the lead vocalist of the band “earthfishfish”.

Beltran, a pioneer in Philippine dance, is the country’s foremost solo dance artist known for her experimental choreographic work. By forming Dance forum in 1994, she has been leading a generation of artists into new terrain in Philippine contemporary dance. Her uniqueness, artistry, and courage has garnered her the ALAB NG HARAYA Award 2001 National Commission for Culture and the Arts, for Individual Recognition in the Performing Arts.

Artists’ Talk complements the ongoing exhibition “After the Fact”, which runs until September 18, 2010.

hello!earth- platform for various arts projects
Date: 03. September 04. September 06. September 07. September 08. September

A project, presented and produced for MYworld Images Festival, Copenhagen 2010.

“Walking together. Eating together. Resting together. Working together. This three week process of cross-pollination and collaboration of people and cultures raises nuanced questions about the individual and the collective. Of cultural contexts in a globalised earth, and the interplay of the imagined and the physical. It points at the fine balance between the cityscape and our bodies. Of arriving at doing without knowing, sometimes alone, sometimes together.”

A social experiment, serious research, virtual excursion. hello!earth's "1&1=1" is all that and more. Join the artists in a site-specific, performative journey into the now. The cast includes, apart from you of course, artists from Denmark, India, Brazil, and the Philippines. The scene is set at Vesterbro, Copenhagen and you will move through the city, individually or in smaller groups, on a walk that explores the potential of pure attention – attention towards your surroundings, yourself, and your fellow human beings. Join the walk and take part in creating a reality that goes far beyond the media-made reality, ideas and images we have about each other. Become part of the contemporary collective 1&1=1 that takes concepts like "us" and "them" and spins them around.

”The project involved artists from very different corners of this planet met in Copenhagen and the performance was developed in a collective process. Questions on the balance of individual and collective in different cultural contexts, how and when we perceive collective action and the interplay of imagined collective and physical presence were at the core of this process. In this performance we share this journey with you, the audience.”

Collaborating artists in 1&1= 1: Ana Paula Albe (Brazil, video artist, Ronaldo Ruiz (The Philippines, visual and performance artist, ), Archana Prasad (India, new media artist, ), Vera Maeder (DK, theatre director and choreographer,, Jacob Langaa Sennek (visual design and director,

Assistance: Pernille Kabell, Signe Allerup, Johanne Kure Kortegaard
Overall concept: Vera Maeder and Jacob Langaa-Sennek

The project has been supported by: DCCD/CKU/ MY world images Festival 2010, Danish Arts Council for Performing Arts/ international exchange and DIVA programme, Copenhagen City/ Commission for Performing Arts.

Fostering a Culture of Knowledge-Sharing

"The festival aims to become a catalyst for a cultural, educational, and technological exchange on emerging new media art practices in South East Asia and Europe," says Tengal, festival organizer for ASEUM "But more importantly to try and shape the way in which we think about and experience these technologies."

This is why ASEUM has partnered with several top universities such as the University of the Philippines-Diliman, De La Salle University-Dasmariñas and DLSU-CSB School of Design and Arts that actively support the development and growth of new media art.

Leading new and inter media art practitioners, researchers, curators and producers from all over the globe such as Peter Tomaz Dobrila [si], Jerneja Rebernak [si/sg], Emma Oto [jp/gb], Aether9 [global], Tad Ermitano [ph], Malek Lopez [ph], Angelo Vermeulen [be], Diego Maranan [ph], Brian O’ Reilly [us], Rick Bahague [ph], Lirio Salvador [ph], Visual Pond [ph], Tim O' Dwyer [au], Darren Moore [au], Vanini Belarmino [de/ph], and Noel de Brakinghe [ph] will hold lectures, workshops and discussions among the most versed of Filipino students in new media art to encourage them to pursue degrees in such field.

Topics such as Open Source Advocacy, Technology and Cultural Practices, Open Structures and Remote Real time Storytelling, Intersections of Art, Ecology, Gaming and Advocacy, Data Visualization: Making meaning in an Info-rich World, Computer music and video in a live setting, Media and the Creation Process, Sound Mapping: Circuit Bending, Pure Data: Practical Programming for Sound Art, Video Art and Experimental Moving Image, Electroacoustic improvisation, Mono- Multi- and Inter-Media, The Value of Exchange in Creative Interdisciplinary and Cross-Border Collaborations, and Why Numbers Make Sounds: Basic Introduction to Patching and Audio Synthesis using Max/Msp will be covered.

A Transformative Sound Experience

Change the way you perceive sound with five nights of rapid electrofringe experimentation on sound and moving image with VJing, intermedia performances, cutting-edge experimental music and related visual arts at ASEUM’s Ear2Eye Program.

“The E2E program wraps up the night with exciting performances from local and foreign guests,” says Tengal “Take this opportunity to be exposed to live improvised experimentations on sound and moving images while sipping a beer or two.”
