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

This summer, come hang out at grunt and multiple locations across the city for HOHOL (Hang Out Hang Out Lang), a project presented by artists and curators Patrick Cruz and Christian Vistan with grunt gallery. Bringing Cruz, Vistan and fifteen other diasporic Filipino contemporary artists from across Canada, US and France in dialogue, HOHOL comprises a group exhibition at grunt and a series of site-specific artworks and programs in venues and other cultural gathering spaces for the Filipino community throughout Vancouver. HOHOL echoes the 1996 exhibition at Plug In, Institute for Contemporary Art in Winnipeg, Memories of Overdevelopment: Philippine Diaspora in Contemporary Art, an unprecedented project in Canada during its time, that brought together Filipino contemporary artists from across the diaspora to reflect on their shared and individual contexts and personal histories. Twenty-eight years later, we are gathering another group of artists to revisit and continue to think about themes and questions of diasporic and postcolonial Filipino identities and practices.

Opening on June 15th, the exhibition will feature works by Christopher Baliwas, Trisha Baga, Patrick Cruz, Ella Gonzales, Ramolen Laruan, Lani Maestro, Manuel Ocampo, Christian Vistan,  and Thea Yabut.

HOHOL includes several other special programs: a panel conversation presented in partnership with the Libby Leshgold Gallery, a performance showcase at Redgate, a film screening at the Pacific Cinematheque and a Filipino food tour — stay tuned for further details coming soon!
