“More Than Lumpia” aims to explore Filipino American identity and challenge stereotypes by showcasing the work of artists in that space. This exhibition works to expand what it means to be Filipino American and to not be boiled down to one dish or a one dimensional view of who a Filipino is.

Reset discusses the challenges of defining identity and authenticity.

GUESTS: Cesar Conde, curator, artist and activist

Abby Mendoza, artist, facilitator and art therapy student

Jimmy Bulosan, artist, art educator and art therapist
