FILIPINABILIA: ORIGINS, RITUALS, ARTIFACTS

FILIPINABILIA

Exhibition by Tina Villadolid, Social Practice, MFA ’23
500 17th Street NW
2nd Floor, Bridge


A remarkable series of phenomena that cannot possibly be evaluated and is worthy of remembrance. Reclamation and reconciliation for untold, incomplete, and propagandized narratives of Filipina/o/x people are at the center of Tina Villadolid’s practice. Through ritual, intervention, and non-traditional materiality, she regenerates legacies of her ancestral past to question imperialist regimes of value that persist today.
