Cultural Cousins - a show of Latinx and Filipinx artists

Cultural Cousins - a show of Latinx and Filipinx artists

In the 16th century, the Spanish empire was known as the most powerful empire in the world. It extended throughout the Americas and throughout the Philippine archipelago in Asia. The effects of Spanish colonialism and imperialism have had a lasting influence on its subjects and have shaped traditions, values, language, food, fashion, and beliefs. Latinxs and Filipinxs share a cultural kinship rooted in colonialism that extends past the history of this mutual Western imperial power and the geographic location of their homeland. This cultural exchange challenges audiences to reconsider ethnic identity outside of race. Cultural Cousins situates 10 artists of Philippine and Latin descent, to lay out their personal histories alongside one another in a space decorated to resemble a sala, establishing that we are family. The show features elements of photography, painting, mixed media, and sculpture, which contribute to the navigation of cultural identity and personal histories. These artists represent a small fragment of a myriad of experiences and narratives of the Latinx and Filipinx diaspora. Cultural Cousins features the work of: Max Sarmiento Emma Noelle Buhain Maria Liebana Jeanne F. Jalandoni Emely Francesca Perez Karl Orozco Manuela Gonzalez Donnabelle Casis Jeannette Rodríguez-Píneda Maia Cruz Palileo Cultural Cousins: a show of Latinx and Filipinx artists is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by LMCC. And ChaShaMa for providing a space to present.

Big Ink at Zea Mays Printmaking

Big Ink at Zea Mays Printmaking

It was an honor to work with Lyell Castonguay of Big Ink. I was invited and created two large-scale woodblocks to print on "The Big Tuna" Big Ink traveling press at Zea Mays Printmaking in August 2018. It was an exciting and rewarding challenge to work on woodblocks at this scale. I'm compelled to explore woodcuts more to see where the work takes me. If you haven't been to Zea Mays Printmaking in Florence, go! It is run by Liz Chalfin, and is one of the largest and most advanced printmaking facilities in the country committed to GREEN print processes and research. They offer residencies, too!

datik - new paintings by Donnabelle Casis

Opening Reception: Friday, June 1, 6-8pm The exhibition title, datik, is an invented word derived from the words datum, datu and batik. Datum refers to a piece of information; datu is a title which denotes the ancient rulers of numerous indigenous peoples throughout the Philippines; and batik is a method of producing colored designs on textiles using a wax-resist method. Casis conceived this word to provide a glimpse into her creative process.
