Filipino American Oral History Project
The Filipino American Oral History Project explores different personal stories of the diaspora in the Greater Newark region and New York City.
This oral history initiative was developed in collaboration with the Clement A. Price Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience at Rutgers University-Newark and was catalyzed by the important survey exhibition of the artist Carlos Villa at the museum.
This virtual program was co-presented by Rutgers University-Newark (@runewark), The Clement A. Price Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience, the San Francisco Art Institute (@sfaiofficial), and The Newark Museum of Art (@newarkmuseumart). Supported in part by the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College.
