Manila attempts to
create a visual discussion around gender and sexuality within local contexts
and internationalised LGBT discourse. It explores the understandings,
misunderstandings, conflicts, humours, loves, eroticisms, deviances,
spectacles, and dilemmas within Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgender
identities. Artists have been invited to contribute personal stories, as well
as comment on the notion of body politics, activism and culture across
generations through various media.
opening: Saturday, 25 August 2012, 2.00 PM (running till 16 September) at Manila Contemporary.
