The Philippines have a rich tradition of weaving and mixed media. The artists in this exhibition not only weave together different materials, but family histories and connections in Hair-pulling Between Good and Evil. Identity is personal, historical, and even haunted. Pulling from disparate identities of first, second, and third generations, but also mixed-raced backgrounds, the artists bridge familial tradition and heritage between the living and the dead. Ancestral spirits and family connections continue to occupy the Filipino diaspora, which the artists explore in this exhibition. These elements are played out in mixed media assemblage, sculpture, weavings, paintings, photography, and performance.
Hair-pulling Between Good and Evil presents the work of Nica Aquino, Jullianne De La Cruz, John DeCastro, Cirilo Domine, Mark Golamco, Philip Košćak, Christine Morla, Michael Rippens, Gloria Gem Sánchez, and Diane Williams; with curation by Christopher Velasco and Dakota Noot.
