She has worked as a writer, researcher, project manager and curator across the field of contemporary visual arts and alongside Philippine and regional-based platforms, artistic communities such as Back to Square, VIVA ExCon, artist-led biennale Juan and diverse collaborators.
Her project Proud Flesh: A litany of disobedience, is a collection of portraits of curators as a way to document points of disobedience. It is a study of the curatorial, and the implications of gender, race and other bigger categorizations in a field that claims to be free and equal.
