A lecture series formatted as conversations between experts—both overseas and local—with the aim of sharing their scholarship and expertise in topics that connect to the themes of the exhibition, Intertwined: Transpacific, Transcultural Philippines.

Intertwined Conversations: Genealogy of Recurring Iconography in Philippine Art
w/ Dr. Florina Capistrano-Baker, Curator

This curator talk and virtual gallery tour trace the intertwined sources of Philippine artworks featured in the exhibition Intertwined: Transpacific, Transcultural Philippines. The talk seeks to illuminate the Filipino’s transpacific heritage resulting from maritime exchanges with diverse cultures in Asia, the Americas and Europe. With Manila as the fulcrum of early trade networks, local societies imported and exported materials, objects, and concepts that mutated in myriad ways through multidirectional circulations of culture. The talk pivots on the transcultural nature of Filipino art by examining the genealogy of iconic themes that are traditionally considered markers of Filipino identity.
