Unwrapping Lumpia - Deconstructing the Filipino American Identity

“Unwrapping Lumpia: Deconstructing the Filipino American Identity” presented by Conde Art Project, in collaboration with Epiphany Center for the Arts invites Filipino American artists to participate in this thought provoking and engaging art exhibit that delves into the complexities of Filipino American identity and experiences of individuals within this community. This exhibit provides a platform for Filipino American artists to explore and express their personal journeys and reflections on identity. Through artistic expression, participants can share their perspectives on what it means to be Filipino American, how their cultural heritage influences their lives, and how they navigate their identities in the diverse sociopolitical landscape of America.

“Unwrapping Lumpia: Deconstruction of Filipino American Identity” is the sequel to the successful art show “More Than Lumpia” during Filipino American History month 2023. Lumpia is a popular traditional dish made of different ingredients, texture, and complex flavor. Much like Filipino Americans.
