This book brings together six essays about the work of Imelda Cajipe Endaya and the culture that nurtured her art. Co-authors are Patrick D. Flores, Flaudette May V. Datuin, Scott Koterbay, Ruben Defeo and Elizabeth Lolarga. The artist's life work has been consistently clustered along the themes of cultural identity, gender, race, nation, migration, displacement, and globalization from the distinct point of view of an enlightened Filipina visual artist. She was awarded the Centennial Honors for the Arts by the Republic of the Philippines in 1999. She has gained recognition in the Asia-Pacific contemporary art world for the distinctly Filipino and female statements in her art, as well as her cultural leadership in the advocacy of women. The folio of selected works done from 1998 to 2008, features the lighter, and more portable pieces of Endaya's work. Published by Lenore RS LIm Foundation for the Arts and the Filipino American Association of Pittsburgh.
