About the Exhibition:
Giving offerings to our ancestors is an indigenous practice in the so-called Philippines that predates Catholocism. It is a way of honoring our ancestors & the time they spent with us on this physical plane. Once a year, many cultures around the world take the time to honor our ancestors, such as ‘Dia de los Muertos’ in Mexico, ‘Pchum Ben’ in Cambodia & many more. In Philippine culture, ‘Araw Ng Mga Patay’ (translating to Day of the Dead in Tagalog – a Philippine language) is a day we reflect on the remembrance of our passed loved ones.

The intention of this exhibition is to highlight how Filipinx-American visual artists use art as a platform to honor our loved ones in the spirit world. Visual artworks selected for this exhibition become an offering to our ancestors in itself.

Curated by Nica Aquino with assistance from Anna Calubayan.

In loving memory of my dad, Alfonso Gaerlan Aquino & good friend, Pedro Balugo, whom both passed away on September 6, 2019.

Nights of Grief & Mystery 2022 Tour: Los Angeles, CA

Concerts for Turbulent Times they surely are. We aren’t poets, maybe, but the evenings are poetic. They are musical and grave and raucous and stilling, which probably means they are theatrical. They are nights in which love letters to life are written and read aloud. There’s some boldness in them. They have that tone. These nights have the mark of our time upon them, and they’re timely, urgent, alert, steeped in mortal mystery. They’re quixotic. They have swagger. What would…
