  • Lolas by Ryan Tacata

    Performances, and part of Thursday Nights

    Jul 20

    Free with museum admission ($10 after 5 PM)

    6:30—9 PM

    Samsung Hall

    Lolas is a performance installation that explores notions of cultural assimilation and resistance through one lola’s garden, an assemblage of found materials, religious icons and constructed identities. Lola, the Filipino/Tagalog word for grandmother, serves as the center of Tacata’s new work, which explores the complicated and sacrosanct figure of the grandmother in Philippine culture as well as an inheritance of racial discrimination, Catholic guilt and queer identities.
