OXNARD, CA, Sept 25, 2019 – CAM Studio Gallery presents Trabaj/ho an exhibition highlighting the shared experiences, history, and struggles between Filipinx and Latinx communities. 

 

Trabajo and Trabaho are both “work” in Spanish and Filipino. These words share every letter but one. This crossover of language is a result of each culture’s history of Spanish colonization. While the meaning of the word remains ingrained in each culture’s history through an apparent shared crossover of language, there is more than what is on the surface of what work has been shared between these communities and the work that still remains.

 

The Spanish Empire was known as “the empire on which the sun never sets.” The impact of Spain on both the Philippines and Latin America, have manifested in a way that has allowed both communities to share both a history of work and resilience. The influence and power of that sun still has yet to set for the Latinx and Filipinx communities. Trabaj/ho aims to highlight how contemporary artists of Latinx and Filipinx descent are unpacking many of these shared residual influences from Spanish colonization and what these common experiences mean to them in their contemporary lives in America.

 

The exhibition features various media—from sculpture to site specific installation. The range of media mirrors the diversity of experiences of each of the 12 chosen artists. The artists featured are as follows:

Jackie Amézquita

Jaime Bailon 

Rosalee Bernabe

Aaron Dadacay

Anna Liza De Leon Evangelista

Matt Manalo

Maryrose Cobarrubias Mendoza

Manny Orozco

Gladys Rodriguez

Olguin Tapia

Jennelyn Tumalad

Maria Villote

 

The exhibition was curated by Jennelyn Tumalad and will open during the first two weeks of October while Filipino American History Month and Latino Heritage Month overlap.
