Bloodlines showcases nine artists who create artwork as a method of reclaiming, preserving and transforming the role of cultural heritage in their lives. By negotiating the physical and spiritual bonds between past and present, these artists explore familial relationships, the lingering effects of diaspora and how ancestral memories shape the way we exist in the modern world.
Some artists use their work as research and investigation, while others use their work as memorial or reclamation of history. The common thread among all is the affirmation that history and ancestors, their presence or lack thereof, are very much active in shaping how each artist experiences the present.
Featuring Jite Agbro, MalPina Chan, Derek Dizon, Priscilla Dobler, Raychelle Duazo, Samina Islam, Steve Jensen, Barry Johnson and Storme Webber.
