Past/Present/Future Tense: Indigenizing Aesthetics in Filipino America
How do indigenous knowledge and cultural traditions inspire Filipino artists in the Philippines and the diaspora? How do these contemporary artists' aesthetic and curatorial practices in turn transform these knowledge and traditions?

Join us for a lively conversation with Katrin de Guia, Ph.D. -- artist and author of  Kapwa - the Self in Other: Worldviews and Lifestyles of Filipino Culture Bearers --and Bay Area-based Filipino American and diasporic Filipino artists on the role of folklore, cultural symbolism, and notions of indigeneity in aesthetics and art-making processes. In this roundtable discussion, each panelist will share background on their own work (artistic, critical, and/or curatorial) and then engage in an intercultural/cross-cultural dialogue on what they see as the impact of Philippine psychology and cultural traits on Filipino and Filipino American arts and culture.

Founder of HAPI, Inc. (Heritage/Arts Academies of the Philippines, Inc.) and member of the Baguio Arts Guild, German-born De Guia is the wife of filmmaker Kidlat Tahimik and mother of Kidlat, Kawayan, and Kabunyan De Guia. Since the early 1980s,  they have created an art-space and temporary home in Baguio for Filipino artists whose orientation, interests and creative style are rooted in indigenous Filipino knowledge systems and practices.

Moderated by Christine Bacareza Balance, Ph.D. and Assistant Professor of Asian American Studies (UC Irvine).
