BaCAA Assemblage examines and evaluates the roles and activities undertaken by BaCAA’s many alumni-from the very first BaCAA to the most recent- then selects and displays only those that are considered representable of BaCAA’s spirit and ideals. Each work tries to reflect the ‘true sense’ of creative situations, while also describing the achievements of each artist. The types of work illuminate the variety of contemporary mediums of expression-from analog works to a creation using digital technology; from works that brought out subjective self-contemplation, to one that borne out of communal interactions involving other parties.
From the beginning, BaCAA’s traditions have always been intended to motivate artists to continue coming up with new initiatives and shore up their competitive energy. A successful artist is those who embody a continuous and sustainable artistic (creative) process, fueled by a competitive spirit that goes both global and positive. Art observer Will Durant has an interesting take on this productive creative process: “ We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
