Gallery Talk: Maia Cruz Palileo

Curator Isabel Manalo and artist Maia Cruz Pailileo will examine works that hinge on fantasy and memory, but hold salient political commentary surrounding American colonization of the Philippines. Free and open to all, please let us know if you plan to attend by RSVPing. 

Burying Teeth: Maia Cruz PalileoCurated by Isabel ManaloOn view June 15-August 11, 2019

These works were created from 2016 to 2019, and depict historical narratives from the colonial past of the Philippines, Maia’s country of origin, as well as stories and moments about her own life as a Filipina American growing up in the United States. Her paintings and drawings replicate figures from old family photographs, as well as photos from American textbooks depicting anthropological documentation of Filipinos during the American colonization. While her work evokes nostalgia and romanticism, it is imbued with a critical undertone of America’s colonization of the Philippines. Maia’s work is an examination of the Filipino diasporic psyche through a personal and political lense.
