Conference | Saturday, June 22
As part of his residency in Paris, organized in collaboration with the Collège d’études mondiales – Fondation de la Maison des sciences de l’homme, Patrick D. Flores will present his ongoing research on a possible method to write a history of post-colonial modern art and to curate a biennale of contemporary art through the work of two women artists from Southeast Asia: Nena Saguil and Amanda Heng. Nena Saguil left Manila in the fifties to study, make art, and live in Paris. Amanda Heng was one of the first to pursue performance as a central aspect of an artist’s practice in the nineties in Singapore. The efforts of Saguil and Heng complicate certain expectations in the procedures of art history and the biennale and therefore reconstruct these institutions in the time of women.
