About the Event

In pre-colonial Bicol, women adored the moon deity, Haliya.

Lahi Ni Haliya

Haliya is the nemesis of the Bakunawa, a sea serpent that people in the olden days believed to rise from the ocean and devour the moon.
Worshippers would start a ritual dance to summon the goddess and ask for her protection. For Haliya is not just a deity. She is a warrior goddess.

Haliya is a symbol of the power of women.

Today, nine women artists gather to channel the strength of Haliya through their works.

LAHI NI HALIYA, an exhibit that explores Pilipina-centric feminism through art.

Featuring the works of Flor Baradi, Connie Cabalar, Tessa Diamse, Maria Candida Flores, Maryrose Gisbert, Inka Madera, Tisa Pallarca-Uy, Vida Verzosa, and Inna Naatep Vitasa.

Witness the unveiling of these nine lady artists’ artworks on 23 September 2017, 6 PM at Sining Kamalig, Ali Mall, Araneta Center, Quezon City.
