Join Matt Manalo, the artist behind "Philippine-Made," and the exhibition’s curator, Kathryn Hall, for an intimate walkthrough of an autobiographical body of work made from air-dry clay, bamboo, and plant materials with cultural ties to Manalo’s home country of the Philippines. Born in Manila, Manalo has spent exactly half his life in America—an experience that has served as a pivotal point of inflection for the artist. The exhibition encapsulates this important moment in Manalo’s life, while also giving visibility to the Filipinx community and confronting the colonial legacy that persists following America’s occupation of the Philippines from 1898-1946.
