The Center for Art and Thought (CA+T), a web-based arts and education nonprofit organization, announces the premier of a new commissioned work: Deception Pass by cross-disciplinary artist Kat Larson. Inspired by the Seattle waterway on which Larson’s Filipino and Scandinavian ancestors nurtured their hopes and dreams, Deception Pass is a mesmerizing meditation on ancestral connections and the transformation of landscapes, both geographic and aural. The video work is part of CA+T’s first curated exhibition “Sea, Land, Air: Migration and Labor,” which begins August 1 and will run for the next three months on CA+T’s new official website (www.centerforartandthought.org).

 

“Sea, Land, Air: Migration and Labor” features work from over 40 artists and scholars from around the world centered on the theme of Filipino global migrancy and labor. Contributors include Filomeno Aguilar, Kimberly Alidio, Zean Cabangis, Catherine Ceniza Choy, Miguel Libarnes, Mail Order Brides/M.O.B., Wawi Navarroza, Lordy Rodriguez, Stephanie Syjuco, Rolando Tolentino, Jenifer ¬†Wofford, and many others.

 

The website also features the first in CA+T’s Dialogues series, Migrant Musicians: Filipino Entertainers and the Work of Music Making, which brings together Theodore S. Gonzalves, R. Zamora Linmark, and Karen Tongson in a playful but illuminating conversation moderated by Sarita Echavez See about the circulation of Filipino musicians in the global entertainment industry.
