The Visayas Islands Visual Arts Exhibition and Conference was an initiative of the Black Artists in Asia (BAA) in Bacolod, Negros Occidental in 1990, during the height of the restoration of democracy and the transition to the Cory administration. This change would trickle down to the direction of the regional art scene. Conceived by Norberto Roldan shortly after BAA’s major exhibition Images of the Continuing Struggle, which he organized and curated at Art Space and First Draft, both independent art spaces in Sydney in 1989, the Visayas Islands Visual Arts Exhibition and Conference (VIVA ExCon) was intended to be a springboard to promote regional art while pursuing networking and collaborations with progressive art communities.

"Challenge accepted." Those were the words spoken by the three artists, Mindanaoan sculptor/painter Kublai Millan, wood sculptor Agi Pagkatipunan and ostrich egg artist, Danny Rayos del Sol in their impromptu meeting in Davao.
A multi-artist collaboration by energetic, specializing in different mediums for creative expression sounds like a daunting task. Cultural bearer Kublai, primarily works on monumental sculptures using large canvases presenting his expressions of culture in the South. His monumental sculptures continuously remind people of the beauty of their ethnicity, reawakening their pride for it.
The arts have always welcomed the strange with open arms, its doors have always been ajar for the peculiar. And in this age of dwindling wonder, a time in which people have possibly seen everything
there is to see, Curio: A Multimedia Art Exhibit wants to elicit the feeling of wonder brought about by a circus, one of the few places where one can get this feeling from, back in the day. Through art, the exhibit aims to explore the relationship between artistic expression and individuality, and to show why the odd is not something to be feared; it is something that we should all embrace.
