Cian Dayrit: Liberties Were Taken

June 12 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Blaffer Art Museum is proud to present Liberties Were Taken the first solo museum exhibition in the United States of works by Manila-based artist Cian Dayrit. Known globally for cartographic artworks, Dayrit investigates notions of power and identity represented and reproduced in monuments, museums, and maps. The exhibition brings together site-specific installations, embroidered textiles, and elaborate paintings created over a decade of participatory actions and solidarity work in the Philippines and around the world. Deploying visual tools, such as written text, graphs, and symbols, the artist positions land as a site of struggle through archival references, protest imagery, and grassroots counter-mapping.
