Overcoming institutional and personal lapses to give attention to little-seen works—some more recent, some surviving loss and decomposition—this program collects loose parts in motion, a series of bangs, or kalampag in Tagalog, assembled by individual strengths and how they might resonate off each other and a contemporary audience. Featuring some of the most striking films and videos from the Philippines and its diaspora, this is an initiative that continues to navigate the uncharted topographies of Filipino alternative and experimental moving image practice.
Coming for the first time to the city of Los Angeles, The Kalampag Tracking Agency will feature works by Raya Martin, Roxlee, Miko Revereza, John Torres, Tito & Tita, and more.
Curated by Shireen Seno and Merv Espina. The Jack H. Skirball Series is organized by Bérénice Reynaud and Eduardo Thomas.
