Exhibition Opportunity

Quarterly exhibitions are themed presentations with accompanying auxiliary programming. The theme for 2008 is Globalization: Response and Responsibility. There are four exhibitions that deal with the topics and their effect on the Filipino community both locally and globally. In addition, we have an annual I-Hotel commemoration exhibit.

You do not have to be Filipino to submit a proposal, but artwork should directly relate to the year's theme and the Filipino experience. We also have a slot for a solo exhibition in December for a promising Filipino artist whose work fits our mission. Our exhibitions for 2008 and tentative dates are:
1. Capitalist Greed and Poverty; Jan 26-Mar 1
2. Women’s Issues: Labor, domestic workers, sex trafficking; Mar 8-May 3
3. Western Ideas/Colonial Mentality; May 12-July 19
4. I-Hotel Commemoration; July 26-Sept 6
5. Cultural Appropriation & Assimilation; Sept 13-Nov 15
6. Solo Exhibition; Nov 22-Dec 31

If you are interested in submitting your work for consideration for the 2008 exhibition, please contact us at Proposals should be received two months before the opening date. The committee meets monthly to review.
