Generating an archive of republished critical, historical and exhibition texts by artists and writers in and about contemporary art in the Philippines and Southeast Asia.

Planting Rice is a curatorial collaboration of Lian Ladia and Sidd Perez. This platform is aimed at fostering the rise of cross-pollination among artistic communities. It distributes information on vital exhibitions, event, places, and mobility by and for art professionals in Southeast Asia and beyond the region who main networks and crossovers in the Philippines. Established in 2011, Planting Rice’s major component is a web-based platform that generates an archive of new and republished texts and current discussions/collaborations that are developing outside established institutions and beyond available publications. The team’s curatorial practice extends off-site and their projects include repotentializing spaces in Manila, Philippines; exploring exhibition forms of the archive; and collaborations with other collectives/institutions in expanding the many roles, forms and gestures of curatorial practice.
