Artist Talk with Prized Filipina-Danish
About the Event
Filipino-Danish artist Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen primarily engages in video and performance taking down her own identity and background as a point of departure.
She will be discussing her works in a public program called ArtSpeak, a lively lecture series of the Ateneo Art Gallery which will be held, this time, at Green Papaya Art Projects where Rasmussen is holding her artist residency in Manila.
Cuenca will present her past works wherein she gathers, adapts, and universalizes her narratives in both a critical and humorous approach in regards to issues such as identity, culture, religion, gender, social relations and art history by re- staging historical performances of other artists.
Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen’s talk is part of the public program of Ateneo Art Gallery’s all-female exhibition, YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT running from February 14 to April 20, 2013.
