Artists’ ARREST Protest Night
March 24, 2006 | Monday | 6-9pm
Mag:net Cafe Katipunan
The name of the program is borrowed from the title of art scholar Lisa Ito’s
article of the same title. Published in 2005, Ito observes in this article that
“as the rallies for GMA’s removal grow exponentially, so does the resolve to
find more creative forms of articulation and expression grow.” Three years later
and with more reasons to remove Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo from office, prose,
poetry, paintings, music, dance, performance and other art forms continue
to be defined by dissent. This event, as it name implies, is thus dedicated to
how the (intensified) call for the ouster of Arroyo is rendered through art.

Nanay Linda Cadapan texted me a couple of days ago: the body exhumed from a grave in Labrador, Pangasinan is most probably not her daughter’s, the missing student activist Sherlyn Cadapan.
