Mestiza/Mestizo is an exhibition that acknowledges, interrogates, and celebrates the multifaceted nature of identity. 17 Jun - 5 Aug, 2023
Drawing from key components of Kleine’s practice, the exhibition speaks to their lived experience as a ‘mestizo’ (i.e. a person of ‘mixed’ Filipino descent), gender fluidity, and other identities considered 'in-between'.
This is expressed through photographic and digital narratives that depict Kleine performing in a variety of guises. For example, Kleine appropriates the representations of people from history and performs them across changing settings. This expresses the capacity of identities to evolve and break away from limiting frameworks.
