SPROUT is a project by plantingrice.com that investigates curatorial contributions to shared but contested artistic communities. It explores the limits of different cultural infrastructures by curating exhibition programs that examine continuous social and artistic production by acknowledging that art production goes beyond the walls of gallery spaces: that it is a continuous process. By featuring emerging artists and those who resist or do not have the benefit of the career-exposure trajectory, SPROUT occupies spaces and identifies the negotiations that mark the visual art climate in Manila.
