This September at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), Errol Orbida aka Chill presents a catalog of photos that documents random moments of life in the streets of Manila. Orbida, who is better known for his work as a street/graffiti artist, returns to the medium that initiated his practice.

 In the exhibit Random Index, a slideshow of more or less three thousand photos is projected on a wall that can be viewed from the outside, giving the people access to Orbida’s perspective. The daily evening projection on the façade of the CCP’s Main Theater Building is installed via a mirror projection system in the 4th floor atrium, adjacent to Orbida’s exhibition of photos printed on both paper and wood. The wall is essential for it acts like a public space, echoing the artist’s background in street art.


Random Index will open on 21 September, 6pm at the CCP’s Pasilyo Victorio Edades (4F Hallway Gallery). Orbida will give an artist’s talk on 19 October, Wednesday, 4pm, at the CCP’s MKP Hall. Exhibit viewing hours are from Tuesday to Sunday, 10am-6pm.
