ArtSpeak: Doko kara kimashita ka?

The Ateneo Art Gallery warmly invites you to an ArtSpeak session:


Doko kara kimashita ka? (Where are you from?)

A talk by Clarissa Chikiamco on her experience in Japan

2.00 pm, 30 March 2011, Wednesday

Ateneo Art Gallery

2nd Level Rizal Library Special Collections Building

Ateneo de Manila University

Loyola Heights, Quezon City

Manila, Philippines


Independent curator Clarissa Chikiamco spent 6 weeks in Japan, from 7 February – 20 March 2011, as the researcher in residence at the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum. In this informal talk, Chikiamco will share about her experience—from research on video art in the FAAM collection to learning Japanese language and culture in her first ever visit to the country. The question, “Doko kara kimashita ka?” (“Where are you from?” or "Where do you come from?"), serves as a parallel to her experience—from the question she was often asked and the question she herself was asking in her research.


After this casual sharing, green tea and Japanese snacks will be served.
