Michelle Dizon: Drifting Islands

(Saturday) (Sunday)

In three video installations on view in the Gallery of California Art, artist Michelle Dizon examines memory, loss, and experiences of displacement for people from many backgrounds, including her own.

Born and raised in Los Angeles as part of the Philippine diaspora, Dizon makes work that sheds light on the obscured histories that exist in landscape, bodies, and conversation. In Dizon's 2012 work, Perpetual Peace, footage gathered over four years shows landscapes marked by past conflicts and present exploitations in the Philippines. Her new work Ex Utero presents portraits of several generations of women from her own family who have been affected by breast cancer. Dizon’s 2008 video Civil Society draws connections between the civil unrest in Los Angeles in 1992 and the outskirts of Paris in 2005.
