Call for Applications Released for Eventual Artist Residency

The ReConnect/ReCollect Residency seeks artists especially interested in exploring the themes of archives, material history, decolonial praxis and restitution, and Filipino, Filipinx, and/or Indigenous identity. We see the residency as an opportunity to engage in conversations around creative expression as inspired or provoked by the content of our collections in the encounter with them. As a collective of scholars and community members deeply interested in defining and exploring what it means to decolonize Philippine collections, we ourselves are in the midst of learning, reflecting on, and effecting change as a team. Our invitation to artists is to ponder the history of imperialism, collecting, and archives alongside us, and to be part of a process that fosters openness and exploration.
