Teodora Alonso Reading Club: A Discussion On The Work Of Imelda Cajipe Endaya

How do you feel about this story?


THE CCP Visual Arts and Museum Division (VAMD) presents the “Teodora Alonso Reading Club: A Discussion on the Work of Imelda Cajipe Endaya,” a public conversation on the artistic and cultural works of the known visual artist, on November 26 (Saturday), 3pm, at the Bulwagang Juan Luna (CCP Main Gallery).

The event is named after one of Cajipe Endaya’s artworks, titled “The Teodora Alonso Reading Club,” which is included in her current retrospective exhibit at the CCP.  The painting shows a palimpsest of an archival image of Teodora Alonso with her daughters and granddaughters wielding books that contend with the friarocracy.

Critic Eileen Legaspi Ramirez and artist Judith Adam will join the discussion via zoom, while artist Brenda Fajardo and scholar Neferti Tadiar will be presenting pre-recorded videos.  Artist Imelda Cajipe Endaya will be present on site to share her own reflections and insights. Professor Sofia Guillermo will moderate the discussion.

The event will conclude with the turnover of “In Certain Seasons Mothers Write in the Time of COVID,” an anthology whose book cover features Cajipe Endaya’s artwork “Salinlahi’y Iligtas.”  The anthology was published by the CCP Intertextual Division and Philippine PEN.

The discussion is open to the public.  Students are encouraged to participate.  The program will also be streamed live via the CCP, CCP VAMD and CCP Intertextual Division’s Facebook Pages.
