FROM MY BODY (main gallery)

Curated by Francis Calimlim & Dara Katrina Del Rosario

From My Body is a multidisciplinary exhibition that showcases the multiple releases of bodies’
subjectivities that describe the navigation, resistance and dialogue with external forces that counter
each of these artists’ lived experiences. The structures of power that impact the stories and memories
we experience and inherit are put in conversation with the what can be passed on to following
generations. Beyond simply affect, activation must be inspired in order to move toward revolutionary
futurity - the belief that in order for social transformation occur, we must first transcend the self.
Educator and philosopher Paulo Freire used Revolutionary Futurity to express the threat of immobility
while addressing the importance learning from the past to inform the ways to build our future. As artists
living in a political climate that continues to be hostile and violent to historically oppressed communities
and bodies, how do we use our creative practices to move toward social transformation?
