Kiri Dalena in ArtSpeak at Ateneo De Manila University

Kiri Dalena featured in ArtSpeak on March 8, 2013 at Rizal Library Special Collections Building, Ateneo de Manila University.
Kiri Dalena will discuss her body of work in a public program called ArtSpeak, a lively lecture series of the Ateneo Art Gallery. Coincidentally, the day of her talk also marks International Women’s Day and she is scheduled to hold her talk at the Ateneo Library for Womens Writings (ALIWW).

Dalena is a visual artist and a documentary filmmaker who graduated from the University of the Philippines Los Banos and studied 16 mm filmmaking at the Mowelfund Film Institute. Her works reflect her concerns as an activist, highlighting social and politically charged issues. She has received the Ateneo Art Awards and the CCP 13 Artist Awards and was included in the finalists for the 2012-13 Sovereign Asian Art Prize.

About ArtSpeak
ArtSpeak--a lively lecture series held periodically - which also involves lectures from guest curators and artists, enhancing the educational experience of the Ateneo Art Gallery. ArtSpeak aims to increase awareness, knowledge and understanding of Philippine modern and contemporary art in the belief that the experience will later generate support for Filipino art and artists.

About the exhibition at Ateneo Art Gallery
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 (Maria Cruz, Tracey Moffat, Annika Eriksson, Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen, Claudia Del Fierro, Lizza May David, Kiri Dalena).

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 participation. This exhibition is curated by Lian Ladia.
