      The Filipino Diaspora Part III: International
      Exhibition: Extended until JANUARY 12, 2008
      Photographs by Rick Rocamora and Vic Valbuena Bareng;
      Artwork by Mel Vera Cruz, England Hidalgo, Arvin Flores, and Sharon Hing
      The Filipino International Diaspora is a story of human exportation and exploitation. Migrant workers from the Philippines send billions back to their country, but the human cost of working abroad is high. While some migrants go abroad with Ph.D.'s, most travel to get away from dire poverty in their homeland. The risks migrants face are widely known, including verbal, physical and sexual abuse, even death, but one in seven Filipino workers left the Philippines last year to work abroad. About half the world's migrants are women, many of whom care for children abroad while leaving their own children home.

      This exhibit explores the social, political and economic conditions of Filipinos abroad and in the Philippines, and the postmodern crisis of identity within succeeding generations.

      Note: Some of the exhibit content may not be suitable for children.

          Call Out to Artists

      Process for Submitting Work for Exhibition at Manilatown Center

      Our 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:

      -WomenÂ’s Issues: Labor, domestic workers, sex trafficking
          Mar 8-May 3
      -Western Ideas/Colonial Mentality
          May 12-July 19
      -I-Hotel Commemoration
          July 26-Sept 6
      -Cultural Appropriation & Assimilation
          Sept 13-Nov 15
      -Solo Exhibition

      If you are interested in submitting your work for consideration for the 2008 exhibition, please visit http://manilatown.org/events.htm#call for more details and to obtain a proposal form.
