About the exhibit:

“All of the Above” is challenging the assumption of identity in America while expanding the concept what it means to be “Filipino.” This exhibit champions the idea that our nationalism is more of an extension of a global nation where no one need fit neatly into one checked off box, but be comfortable with all the loose pieces that do in fact fit together. It is an exhibition of dreams and reality, limitations and expansions, traditions and contemporary life.
