#DexterSy's TERRAIN show at the 3F South Wing Gallery runs until June 3, 2016. Sy will be an Artist Facilitator of the 11th Junior Museum Guides program of the Vargas Museum in celebration of this year's #internationalmuseumday. The works of Sy are in conversation with the Vargas #archives. Curator: Ryan Francis Reyes with support from The Working Animals Art Projects #contemporarartandsociallife #kinship #abstractions #pattern #cartographic The word is popularly used today to describe out-of-line vehicles and operators, those that stray from regular or registered routes. In the chaotic movement of the metro traffic, colorum vehicles pose threats to the already compromised order and safety of our streets. It originated from a corrupted Latin phrase commonly ending Christian prayers—saecula saeculorum—and first given to various religious groups that emerged outside the control of the Catholic Church whose membership mostly consisted of poor peasants in the countryside or laborers in the city. These groups staged several uprisings and revolts against powerful institutions, be it the church or the state. As such, colorum carries with it a connotation of going against the mainstream, a set of diverse and alternative tracks that offer deviation from the norm. 
Colorum is used in this exhibition to introduce works of young and emerging artists traversing diverse artistic trajectories, but gathered as a collective of incipient voices aiming to break away from mainstream and established paths. This project is an attempt to mark out new and alternative routes in the contemporary art scene. The collective calls itself The Working Animals Art Projects, a name that highlights the energy and endurance of its members in carrying out its vision. Coinciding with the highly politicized atmosphere of the election season, participating artists offer a range of tangents and allusions to a troubled society, immersed in a glut of stimuli, and distracted by competing revelations of reality.
