Closing Event: Banig Karaoke with Bhen Alan

Wednesday, May 22, 2024
9 – 11PM

Join CUE Art Foundation in the gallery for a special karaoke event to mark the culmination of the solo exhibition Sometimes My Accent Slips Out by Bhen Alan.

Karaoke is often described as a national pastime in the Philippines. It brings people together for informal socializing, gathering, and fun—much like the banigs (traditional Filipino mats) that inform Bhen Alan’s large-scale woven works. The event will make interactive use of the exhibition, particularly Alan’s large-scale hanging work, Mother Tongue, in the spirit of pakikisama (making others feel welcome, safe, and nurtured).

Join in to celebrate the artist and his work, and to activate the banigs with community presence.

The event is free, and all are welcome.
