Memories of Overdevelopment: Philippine Diaspora in Contemporary Art
This book provides an overview of the exhibition 'Memories of Overdevelopment: Philippine Diaspora in Contemporary Art', which features over 40 works by 25 artists and 2 art collectives, as well as studies of contemporary Filipino art in various contexts.
According to the introduction, the present publication is "an attempt to scratch the surface of difficult questions surrounding art from the Philippine Diaspora and to present the recent work of selected artists who have not attracted critical exposure. It is not a tribute to immigrant assimilation into a more powerful culture but one map of a process of ongoing exchange, of migration and return, of dislocation and resistance".
Includes exhibition checklist and biographical notes.
