Filipino-American Arts Salon, is an event of conversations and artist talks inviting attendees to deepen their knowledge of the artistic practice of contemporary Filipino-American artists living and working in Southern California. This artist panel is a platform for artists and communities to bridge generations and share ideas on culture, art, and representation.

The program will be moderated by curator/gallerist Edwin Ramoran, formerly of the Studio Museum in Harlem, NY, and will feature contemporary artists representing many different aspects of the art world, including George Domantay, Cirilo Domine, Maryrose Cobarrubias Mendoza, Joseph Santarromana and Eliseo Art Silva.

Each artist will present seminal pieces from their career and participate in a short Q&A.

Among topics to be discussed: (1) Contemporary Art as a vehicle for cultural identity while speaking more of the situation of contemporary Filipino artists in regards to diaspora; (2) the international identity of Filipino artists as it expands its borders beyond the islands; and (3) Americanization vs Filipinization as drivers for growth, community/nation-building and art production among contemporary artists of Filipino heritage.

Light food and refreshments will be served.

The event coincides with the 16th anniversary of the designation of Historic Filipinotown, Los Angeles on August 2,2002.
