About this event
Curator Alexis Convento invites Filipinx artists both from the homeland and the diaspora come together to reclaim, to decolonize, to (re)trace our roots.
“To decolonize is to tell and write one’s own story, that in the telling and writing others may be encouraged to tell their own.” —Leny Mendoza Strobel, “Coming Full Circle”
