Event description

Description

PostColonial Survival Kit is a FREE exhibition that explores survival tactics of contemporary tribal and diasporic Pilipinx against the historical and ongoing inequities of cultural erasure and marginalization, brought on by centuries of colonization. The exhibition features tribal soil paintings, sculpture, installation, and media art and will run from May 3-31 at the Luggage Store Gallery.

The month-long exhibition features curated programming including an exclusive performance by Talaandig Tribe Culture Bearers Datu Rodelio ‘Waway’ Saway, Salima Saway Agra-an, and Marcelino 'Balugto' Necosia Jr. for the opening reception on May 3rd. The visiting tribal artists will be exhibiting their internationally recognized soil paintings. The contemporary tribal voice complicates the identity dialogue within the Pilipinx diaspora.
