Manila: Cast But One Shadow (Published in ArtAsiaPacific)

Excerpt from AAP Issue 127. Read more here.

“Cast But One Shadow: Afro-Southeast Asian Affinities” was a densely researched exhibition. It was the Manila iteration of curators Carlos Quijon Jr. and Kathleen Ditzig’s ongoing project reviewing global solidarities from a Southeast Asian positionality, which began in Singapore with the show “In Our Best Interests: Afro-Southeast Asian Affinities during a Cold War” (2021). Expansive in its explorations, the presentation occupied all three floors of UP Vargas Museum, even stretching into its external spaces, and included new commissions, loans from the museum, diplomatic gifts from the Macapagal collections, and archival materials that trace the historical and imagined ties of Afro-Southeast Asia.
