The 9th Dambana

APICC is proud to feature Sami See's The 9th Dambana as part of the United States of Asian America Festival 2020: FINDING KINSHIP.

“The 9th Dambana” features vibrant mixed-media portraits, centering Filipino-American women in the SF Bay Area community. This interactive exhibit uses an augmented reality app allowing viewers to tune into diasporic narratives voiced by the loved ones of those portraited. Artworks weave the struggle, resilience and power of women into sacred offerings that reflect the beauty of bodies in relationship. The opening reception features food and live music, with sales benefitting a local womens advocacy group.

This event was originally set to occur at Bindlestiff Studio. Stay tuned for info on online programming.
