“We are all parts of a whole. Our individual actions, conversations, behaviors and mindsets can have an impact on our larger society.”

2020 International Women’s Day Theme

“A Part to Play: For Every Woman” provides creative glimpses into the different stories and roles women take part in in their daily lives. Encapsulated themes about the body, personal memory, and local identity convey individual perspectives and experiences that when taken together, present a collective voice that calls for an enabled place for women in art and life. Particular works call for introspective reflections towards women’s livelihood in the Philippines; others express a compelling power to claim and reclaim their voice and strength through their artistic practice. 

Recognizing the intimate ties between women and their part in history, this exhibit brings together women of different backgrounds and careers united by their shared interest and passion for creating art. Featuring artists from different walks of life and roles in society, the exhibit provides a space for artists to not only showcase their works to a wider public but to also contribute to discussions on what it means to be a woman today. 

“A Part to Play: For Every Woman” draws inspiration from the themes championed by International Women’s Month 2020:  gender equality and the strength of the individual and the collective. This exhibition is presented in partnership with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and the Employees Association (BSPEAI), with the special participation of Ms. Love Marie Ongpauco-Escudero together with the BSP Art Club, and Kababaihan sa Sining at Bagong Sibol na Kamalayan (KASIBULAN).
