A comic book about the lives of Filipina migrant workers

Toronto-based artists, Althea Balmes and Jo SiMalaya Alcampo are creating a community comic book in collaboration with Filipina migrant workers in the Live-in Caregiver Program called, “Kwentong Bayan: Labour of Love”. In the Filipino language, “kwentong bayan” is the literal translation of “community stories”. The artists will present work-in-progress and caregivers will share real-life stories.

The Live-in Caregiver Program continues to be heavily contested and at the centre of many controversies. Many Canadians rely on this program to access affordable care for vulnerable members of their families.

Many Filipinas leave their own families and work abroad to cope with the unstable economy in the Philippines. 

Also check out Filipino Web Channel three-part videos on the project:

Contemporary Art Week!

Kehinde Wiley

Los Angeles native and New York-based visual artist Kehinde Wiley has firmly situated himself within art history’s portrait painting tradition. As a contemporary descendent of a long line of portraitists—including Reynolds, Gainsborough, Titian, Ingres, and others—Wiley engages the signs and visual rhetoric of the heroic, powerful, majestic, and sublime in his representation of urban black and brown men found throughout the world.

By applying the visual vocabulary and conventions of glorification, wealth, prestige, and history to subject matter drawn from the urban fabric, Wiley makes his subjects and their stylistic references juxtaposed inversions of each other, forcing ambiguity and provocative perplexity to pervade his imagery. Wiley’s larger-than-life figures disturb and interrupt tropes of portrait painting, often blurring the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation and the critical portrayal of masculinity and physicality as it pertains to the view of black and brown young men.
