Asian Art Museum
1 :30 pm, October 4, 2009
Togonon Gallery Director Julina Togonon will participate in a roundtable discussion of Artists and scholars about the state of Filipino-American arts today. She will present the story of Leo Valledor, a pioneering Filipino American artist whom critics and curators regarded as a major master of geometric abstraction. Julina will show a trailer for a documentary project by Togonon Gallery on Leo Valledor's artistic life story. Presenting Leo's story will be a window to the history of Filipino -American Fine arts in the U.S and will be a good reference point for talking about the issues: access, biases, challenges, successes, the current contemporary scene and future directions. Celebrate Filipino American History Month with Filipino American artists, authors, and performers.
