This book is a great introduction to a group of artists you have probably never heard of, or even considered. With its great energy, insightful information, and careful production I’d be happy to add it to my bookshelf.

Project Description

No Chaos No Party is a 218-page hard-back book featuring interviews, artworks and the personal archives of 28 contemporary artists who live and work in Metro Manila, Philippines. This book aims to promote contemporary Filipino artists and the urban context in which their practices exist.

As a conversation in text and images, the book illustrates how artists love and hate a perfectly imperfect city, because Metro Manila is full of contradictions. So the title uses the concept of chaos, a word often used to describe the Metro in a negative way, as a positive starting point for a diverse set of artistic energies inspired by the limitless content the city provides. But rather than embark on an almost impossible geographical survey of the art scene in Metro Manila, a group of inter-generational artists working across a variety of medium, were selected to give an overview of life in the capital. They were then interviewed and photographed over the course of 2015, sharing anecdotes from their lives, thoughts on their artistic practices and the alternative spaces related to them, as well as their hopes and frustrations on Metro Manila.

Production Lesson(s)

Always always work with your printer. When a lot of people gets involve in a project such as this, reminders are coming left and right and tend to be forgotten, be updated with every step of the way and to constantly set a reminder.

Insist on what you believe in on the type of materials/paper you really want to use. ¬†You have to make extra effort to make your client believe that paper choice is really important.”
