The Time of Women : Philippine Art History and Singapore Biennale 2019

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.
