8 Filipina 2011 honors male environmentalists


Last year, 8 Filipina environmentalists were honored by 8 male artists. This year, it’s the other way around. 8 Filipina artists will honor 8 male artists. The exhibit will also be dedicated to Jose Rizal, the unheralded environmentalists, whose 150th year of birth we celebrate this year; and the late botanist Leonard Co, who was killed in alleged crossfire between rebels and military last year.

The pairs and their researchers/writers are:

Lena Cobanbang (extreme right), with Norma Liongoren and Mr. Catan (fourth from right). The other photos are of Lena’s past works, which she will put together for her installation on Catan’s work.
