This week focuses on Filipino American art, a teacher once told Villa that there was no Filipino art history to investigate. Do you think this inquiry could have motivated him to be the “interlocutor” to fill such historical absence/gaps? What kind of strategies did he use/employ as interlocutor?
What is the difference between validation and self-validation (based from article Actions Speak Louder than Words: Carlos, The Man by Theresa Harlan, Filipino American Arts Exposition Catalog)
In Carlos Villa and the Integrity of Space article (edited by Theodore S. Gonzalves), why do you think Carlos Villa is neglected by art historians and by Asian-Americanists? What is meant by the term “art action” in Villa’s “artwork”?
Regarding the Worlds in Collision website (http://worldsincollision.org) devoted to Filipino American art history, it seems hasn’t been updated in a while, any comments or suggestions to improve the site?
