The Promdi Project is a survey of contemporary art practices in Dumaguete and surrounding areas through the persona of the artist-teacher. Selections for the exhibition was based primarily on active contemporary visual arts practices whose tone and tenor draw from concurrent teaching practices, both informal and institution-based. The result is an array of work diverse in formal scope and complex in its investigations. By using the extant, living framework of Dumaguete’s visual arts teaching, the exhibition hopes to raise questions not only about what is being taught but also about who the promdi is, who learner and teacher happen to be.

Viewing hours are from Tuesday to Sunday, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Promdi is possible with support from Silliman University, Mariyah Gallery, Galleria Duemila, and Salag Zamboanga Jumalon Art House.
