Kritika Kultura, the international refereed journal of language, literary,
and cultural studies of the Department of English, Ateneo de Manila
University will host a lecture by Thea Quiray Tagle titled “The Art of
Salvage: Mapping Blackness and Waste through Michael Arcega’s *Nacireman
Excavation*.” The lecture is on Sept. 8, 2017, from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m., at
CTC 404, Ateneo de Manila University. The lecture is open to the public.

Tagle’s abstract reads: “This lecture excavates the sedimented histories
and geographies of anti-black violence in San Francisco, California
embedded in Filipino American artist Michael Arcega’s mixed media pieces,
made for his 2015 residency at Recology (the city’s privately-owned waste
management facility). At Recology’s Artist In Residence program, cultural
workers repurpose materials salvaged from the dump, transforming the city’s
waste into objects with educational and artistic value. These artworks are
exhibited at Recology’s facilities, located in Bayview Hunters Point—the
last remaining African American neighborhood within San Francisco’s
borders. Tracing the visual lexicon deployed in, and the conditions of
production and circulation of, Arcega’s works alongside the development of
Bayview’s (un)natural landscapes, I ruminate on the aesthetics of salvage
and the mattering of blackness in the US and globally, from World War II
through the present."
