This art piece is the end product to my Student Initiated Project (SIP): WERQin It! Chubby Queers of Color. Through this art canvas, I asked the folks who participated to reflect about themselves something they personally identify with, something that gives them strength, anything that they want to share with the community. This was a way to Queer normative views of what it means to identify as a Big, thick, chubby, Fat person of color by having folks identify themselves and find new ways and methods to explore what these identities mean to them. This is only the beginning of this process of, hopefully, future conversations. For more information please contact: Anthony Del Real apdelreal@gmail.com

"The Decolonized Eye: Filipino American Art & Performance" w/ Prof. Sarita See        

Friday | May 25 | 3pmsaritasee 

CCC Comunidad 


From the late 1980s to the present, artists of Filipino descent in the United States have produced a challenging and creative movement. In The Decolonized Eye, Sarita Echavez See shows how these artists have engaged with the complex aftermath of U.S. colonialism in the Philippines.Focusing on artists working in New York and California, See examines the overlapping artistic and aesthetic practices and concerns of filmmaker Angel Shaw, painter Manuel Ocampo, installation artist Paul Pfeiffer, comedian Rex Navarrete, performance artist Nicky Paraiso, and sculptor Reanne Estrada to explain the reasons for their strangely shadowy presence in American culture and scholarship. Offering an interpretation of their creations that accounts for their queer, decolonizing strategies of camp, mimesis, and humor, See reveals the conditions of possibility that constitute this contemporary archive. By analyzing art, performance, and visual culture, The Decolonized Eye illuminates the unexpected consequences of America's amnesia over its imperial history. View the flyer
