"I'm glad we've unlearned enough now to really appreciate the ambition of [Pacita's] universe."— Pio Abad

Last month, we hosted a panel on Pacita Abad’s life and legacy as part of our Open House. Featuring Ruba Katrib, Joan Kee, and Pio Abad, the panel delves into the rise of Pacita's visibility within the art world, the intimacy with which she depicted her subjects, and so much more. Watch the full video above, and plan your visit to see Pacita Abad, on view through September 2.
