SAMASAMA Art Show & Gathering Schedule of Events by Les Talusan

* Flyer image painted by  Henley Bounkhong

* Flyer image painted by Henley Bounkhong

Foreign National and Batang Kankaloo present the 3rd Annual SAMASAMA Art Show & Gathering. Founded in 2016 to honor Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May, this exhibition will present original work by artists of color from diaspora communities.

The term SAMASAMA means all together in Tagalog. The theme of the exhibit is Bayanihan, a Filipino custom derived from the Tagalog word bayan, meaning community. It refers to the spirit of communal unity, work, and cooperation to achieve a particular goal.

AAPI communities are rich in tradition and heritage, but tread quietly in the modern-day conversation of nuanced diversity. America's relationships and identities are more complex today than ever, uncovering layers of untold and underrepresented narratives. These differences are encouraged, celebrated, and is the foundation of supporting, and understanding one another's cross-cultural connections.

This year, SAMASAMA will continue its tradition of donating a portion of proceeds for all art sold to local organization Asian American LEAD (AALEAD). In support for the tireless work that they do for our youth. Please tag and follow us on IG @samasamaart and use the hashtag #SAMASAMAART2019 to view our activities throughout the month and share our artists’ powerful work!

It's April 1st by Les Talusan

It’s the first day of April and the cherry blossoms reached peak bloom so I walked around the Tidal Basin today and took these photos.

Bahala Na Radio at Eaton by Les Talusan

IMG_3444.jpg

I recently started a radio show at Eaton Hotel’s in-house radio station, Eaton Radio. It’s a community-based radio station with a DIY spirit, so it seems that I fit right in. My weekly radio show, Bahala Na Radio, is all music, no talking. Bahala Na is a popular expression from the Philippines that is similar to the Spanish phrase "que sera sera". It reflects both resiliency and a fatalistic attitude of the culture that I grew up with. Expect a variety of tunes from my eclectic record collection. I stream on Instagram Live and Eaton Radio, Thursdays at 2:00PM. It’s Women’s History Month and for the whole month of March, I’ll only be playing women-fronted groups.

Here's a mix I made that includes some songs from last week's show. Some songs are on heavy rotation, some are records I bought from my recent trip to Thailand with my favorite digging partner and some were hidden for a long time in my record shelves (that I need help organizing).

Bahala Na Radio Mix (Women’s History Month Edition 1.0) by Les The DJ

Little Ann “Deep Shadows” [Deep Soul]
The Chapells ”You’re Acting Kind of Strange” [Bedford Records]
The Monzas “Where Is The Love” [Numero Group]
Asha Puthli “Let Me In Your Life” [CBS]
Tamiko Jones “Touch Me Baby” [Arista]
Celeste “Pag-Ibig Nang Lubos-Lubos” [Pioneer]

SAMASAMA Art Show & Gathering - Call For Artists by Les Talusan

Call for Artists for Art Show Celebrating
Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

SAMASAMA ART SHOW & GATHERING

DEADLINE:          APRIL 1, 2019, MONDAY
CURATORS:
FOREIGN NATIONAL AND BATANG KANKALOO
LOCATION:
  SHOPKEEPERS, 1231 FLORIDA AVE NE WASHINGTON, DC 20002
ON VIEW:
          MAY 1-25, 2019
OPENING RECEPTION:
MAY 1, 2019, WEDNESDAY, 6-9PM

Call Summary: February 6-April 1, 2019 Foreign National and Batang Kankaloo present the 3rd Annual SAMASAMA Art Show & Gathering. Held in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May, this exhibition will present original work by artists of color from diaspora communities.

The term SAMASAMA means all together in Tagalog. The theme of the exhibit is Bayanihan, a Filipino custom derived from the Tagalog word bayan, meaning community. It refers to the spirit of communal unity, work, and cooperation to achieve a particular goal.

From the outside, AAPI communities are often perceived as devoid of meaningful difference in identity and experience. From the inside, our communities live vibrant, varied lives - but remain divided by a lack of exchange between our cultures and ongoing histories.

Our goal is to examine the multicultural American experience and to break through stereotypes and boundaries because diverse stories, perspectives, and contributions push humanity forward.

This year we will be donating a portion of proceeds for all art sold to local organization Asian American LEAD (AALEAD) for the tireless work that they do for our youth.

Specifications: Open to artists of color producing original paintings, screen prints, illustrations, digital prints, photographs, stand-alone installations or 3-dimensional work with print components. Artwork must be displayable on a wall and must be wired for hanging and no larger than 4x5 feet. Art that highlights the Spirit of Bayanihan, AAPI culture or perspective, social justice, and racial justice issues are especially encouraged.

Requirements:

Submission Deadline: April 1, 2019 (Midnight EST) and Artists will be notified via e-mail of their acceptance on or before April 5, 2019. Art to be delivered at Shopkeepers between 12-6pm on Sunday, April 21, 2019.
