"More Than Lumpia"
“More Than Lumpia,” a juried art exhibit showcasing Filipino American Artists in October 2023 during Filipino American History month presented by Epiphany Center for the Arts and Conde Art Project in Chicago, IL. Filipinos are the second largest Asian group but lags representation in the art community. The exhibit explores the Filipino American experience through visual arts. Conde Art Project partners with Epiphany Center for the Arts who share the same mission of representation regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation and religion.
Lumpia, a popular Filipino eggroll, has been one of the most recognizable food from the Philippines. It was first introduced to the Philippines during the pre-colonial period by early Chinese immigrants and traders. Lumpia was introduced to The United States during the American Colonization of The Philippines.
As Filipino cuisine gain recognition, “More Than Lumpia” explores Filipino American identity, socio-cultural experience and politics beyond the “Eggroll.”
