Artist Talk : Mary Mattingly at the University of the Philippines
New York based artist Mary Mattingly talks about her art practice and Manila Project: “Wearable/Portable Architecture”
Mary Mattingly, whose artistic practice addresses nomadic themes with current and future global environmental and political conditions, is in the Philippines on a fellowship through smARTpowersm.
To supplement the fellowship program and to initiate the space for community engagement, Mary Mattingly will be presenting both her project in the Philippines and her artistic interests and practices that move around interdependences of communities facing pressing political and climatic conditions.
Her talk in the Jose Joya Hall of the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts will take place at 1:00pm on Tuesday, 25 September. Mattingly will introduce “Wearable/ Portable Architecture” - a project framed as an open source collaboration and exchange that inquires about how our urban and rural surroundings would look like if our built enviroment is designed to move. This presentation will further precede the workshop that she will conduct at Green Papaya Art Projects in October.
