Woman's Bodies: A Celebration
This travelling exhibit is both a celebration of life and a partnership in creativity.
This celebration privileges the very fount of life - a woman's body. The subject of the artworks included in the exhibit is the woman's body rendered in various states and emotions. Joyous and pained, shackled and free, inhibited and liberated - both physical body and inner consciousness are portrayed through the elements of color, line, shape, texture and space.
And like most celebrations, this creative endeavor gathers a diverse community of artists to partake in the festivity of rending the Woman as subject. Different sectors of society forged a modest partnership to realize this project. Female and male artists contributed their works make this travelling exhibit truly representative of the emerging feminist consciousness in the visual arts community. Local government units and non-government offices pitched in their resources so the artworks could reach out to a broader audience. Feminist activists tapped new allies in the advocacy for women's issues and concerns.
As this exhibit travels through many towns
and cities all over the archipelago, it also hopes that it will
open new journeys for its participants and potential audience.
