This group exhibition presents new and recent work by four artists of Filipino descent living and working in the New York metropolitan area. These artworks, in particular, paradoxically embody and disembody, reveal and obscure, abstract and confound personal and cultural chronicles and images. Their works visually and figuratively may seem out-of-focus and esoteric, somewhat distant echoes of recorded histories or constructed identities. This is deliberate. Featuring work by Maia Cruz Palileo, Rico Reyes, Jaret Vadera, and Aldrin Valdez.
The Filipino American Museum (FAM) is a platform for artists of Filipino descent and for work that captures and contextualizes the Filipino experience in America. FAM is a fluid space for the active investigation and expression of ideas at the intersection of contemporary art, culture and community.
