Ligalig: Art in a Time of Turmoil
8 February to 5 August 2017
Ligalig, a Filipino word for “threat,” encompasses the themes that continue to be relevant to this day — threat to life and freedom brought about by abuse of power, poverty, economic and social inequalities, and environmental degradation. The range of artworks in this exhibition is quite varied — from paintings, prints, and drawings to mixed media and video works. Alongside visual expressions, selected poems to provide a literary dimension to the struggle fought. The exhibit also includes a compilation of documentaries addressing memory, or the lack of, and recent history.
