Recent Acquisitions: Stephanie Syjuco

In Southwest Ambulatory

Stephanie Syjuco (See-WHO-ko) is a multimedia artist whose work often examines and challenges standard narratives of history and the legacies of empire. Her art is bold and inventive, energized by sharp insight and sly wit. Syjuco has worked in diverse forms and mediums, including photography, sculpture, textiles, social practice, and installation.

On view in this exhibition are recent AMAM acquisitions that represent the artist’s earlier and more recent photography-based work. Black Market draws attention to global flows of capital and hidden economies. A more recent series, Afterimages, was developed out of a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship. Born in the Philippines, Syjuco used the fellowship to support her search for evidence of the Philippines, Filipinos, and Filipino-Americans in various national and state archives. The fragmentary and biased character of the records she uncovered reveals the limited historical American vision of the Philippines, which was a U.S. colony from 1898 to 1946.
