PostColonial Survival Kit is an exhibition that explores survival tactics of contemporary tribal and diasporic Pilipinx against the historical and ongoing inequities of cultural erasure and marginalization, brought on by centuries of colonization. The exhibition features tribal soil paintings, sculpture, installation, and media art and will run from May 3rd through May 31st at the Luggage Store Gallery.
The month-long exhibition features curated programming including an exclusive performance by Talaandig Tribe Culture Bearers Datu Rodelio 'Waway' Saway, Salima Saway Agra-an, and Marcelino 'Balugto' Necosia Jr. for the opening reception on May 3rd.
