YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT
February 16 – April 20, 2013
Opening Reception: February 16, Saturday, 4pm, Ateneo Art Gallery
Featuring artists: Maria Cruz (Berlin/Sydney/Manila), Lizza May David (Berlin/Manila), Tracey Moffatt (Sydney/New York), Claudia Del Fierro (Chile/Sweden), Annika Eriksson (Berlin/Sweden), Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen (Copenhagen) and Kiri Dalena (Manila).
The exhibition, YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT, features contemporary female artists working with video, painting, photography, media and technology, creating process-oriented works that often involve collaborations, social interaction and the inclusion of real situations in their pieces. Their works reveals certain biographies wherein the personal becomes political. Manila, as a developing country, has been ranked high globally - as a country leading gender equality, closely following European counterparts. This makes it a very interesting point of interest for bold works that are open to in-depth research, chance and performativity.
Artist talks are also programmed to happen during the duration of the exhibition at the Ateneo Art Gallery (Feb 16, 2pm with Maria Cruz, February 17, 2pmwith Lizza May David), The Ateneo Library of Women’s Writings (March 8, 2pm with Kiri Dalena), Alternative space 98B (February 17, 2pm with Claudia Del Fierro), and Green Papaya Art Projects (February 13, 7pm with Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen).
