300 Years in a Convent, 50 in Hollywood
The programs in American studies and Asian American studies, in cooperation with the Lewis Center for the Arts and the Department of Art and Archaeology, invite the University and local community to an art exhibition and public conversation on Oct. 6, 2021, in honor of Filipino American History Month.

The exhibition presents works by the eight artists of the Filipino American art collective NExSE. The exhibition’s title, “300 Years in a Convent, 50 Years in Hollywood,” is taken from a popular idiomatic expression used in the Philippines to describe its complex colonial history. The convent signifies Spanish rule through Catholicism and Catholic values, customs and codification. Hollywood refers to the ways in which American popular culture has imagined the Philippines in terms of exoticism, glamour, difference and seduction.

At 4:30 p.m., log on for a tour of the exhibit with the artists. At 5 p.m., the artists will be joined by art historian and curator Patrick Flores from the University of the Philippines, who will offer opening remarks before opening up to a conversation with the artists and the public, moderated by Princeton professor Paul Nadal.

Oct 6, 2021 04:30 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
