HOHOL (Hang Out Hang Out Lang)

Exhibition Title: HOHOL (Hang Out Hang Out Lang)

Artist: Curated by Patrick Cruz and Christian Vistan

Opening: June 15th, 2024

Exhibition Dates: June 15th-August 17th, 2024

HOHOL (Hang Out Hang Out Lang) is a project presented by artists and curators Patrick Cruz and Christian Vistan with grunt gallery. Comprising a group exhibition at grunt and a series of artworks and programs in venues and other cultural spaces for the Filipino community throughout Vancouver, HOHOL gathers Filipino contemporary artists from across the diaspora and puts them in dialogue with each other and the 1996 exhibition at Plug In, ICA in Winnipeg, Memories of Overdevelopment: Philippine Diaspora in Contemporary Art, an early reference and inspiration for HOHOL. HOHOL brings together these artists to reflect on their shared and individual contexts and personal histories and to continue to think through themes and questions of diasporic and postcolonial Filipino identities and practices.

Opening on June 15th, the exhibition features artworks by Christopher Baliwas, Trisha Baga, Patrick Cruz, Ella Gonzales, Ramolen Laruan, Lani Maestro, Manuel Ocampo, Christian Vistan, Thea Yabut and a text by Patrick Flores.

As an offsite extension of the HOHOL exhibition, Lani Maestro’s STILL is screening on the Emily Carr Urban Screen at the Wilson Arts Plaza, May 13-July 14, 2024. Presented in parteneship with Libby Leshgold Gallery.

Lani Maestro’s STILL brings the work – originally commissioned for a poster billboard in Toronto in 2002 – into a new, digital context. Maestro’s work has often taken the form of images that become embodied in the process of reading or utterance and STILL exemplifies the artist’s inquiries into language, the body and subjectivity.
