Event Admin: Mynila’s Choice
Gendered Bodies in Southeast Asia is an exhibition that pays tribute to female artists from Southeast Asia, as pioneers in advancing art's transformative role in contemporary societies, and as educators of artistic communities. A collaborative curatorial initiative of Filipino curator Tessa Maria Guazon and Taiwanese curator Fang-Tze Hsu, this exhibition addresses contemporary precarity through a trans-generational effort, initiating dialogues with a younger generation of artists, who continue these endeavors with new aesthetic languages.
Taking the comparative path as exhibition making process, Metropolitan Museum of Manila hope to bring forth the historical legacies established by artists Brenda Fajardo (B. 1940, the Philippines), Amanda Heng (B. 1951, Singapore), Wu Mali (B. 1957, Taiwan) as point of departure to initiate and develop a dialogue with a younger generation of artists who continue these critical endeavors with new aesthetic languages.
