DESCRIPTION

In the Experimental Gallery
Guest Curators: Pearlie Rose Baluyut and Agnes Bertiz

The second in a series of experimental, community-driven exhibits, Fashioning Domesticity, Weaving Desire: Visions of the Filipina explores the canonical images of the early to mid 20th-century Filipina as civilized and wild. Through textiles and photography, this exhibition addresses two key performative issues: the fashioning of domesticity and the weaving of desire. It will problematize the body as a (dis)embodied landscape activated by the braided contexts of colonialism and democracy.
