    4 Filipinx-American Artists Transform Space


    Featuring New Works By:

    Michelle Castillo // Cirilo Domine // Philip Košćak // Maryrose Cobarrubias Mendoza // Curated by Nica Aquino


    Show Statement:
    As Filipinxs in the U.S. diaspora, we are often left wondering: What is our place here? As settlers in Native Californian lands, we’ve all arrived to this destination on different terms. Whether our families immigrated here in search of opportunities, we came here alone, or were born here, we all interpret our place here differently. We adapt our own spaces that shape our histories & develop our individual identities. For this exhibition, 4 Filipinx-American artists working in sculpture & installation were invited to transform their own spaces in the CFAER gallery, highlighting their unique visions & individual interpretations of space & place. As Filipinxs in the US diaspora, how do we hold our space here? Through this exhibition, artists will create imagined spaces — questioning how we access & exist in them.
