Artist Talk: Palmarin Merges

Join Blackfish Gallery for a talk with Palmarin Merges. Merges will talk about her exhibition Manila to PDX / Exploratory Drawings.

The Manila folder is made from a species of banana that is originally from the Philippines, known as abaca or more commonly as Manila hemp hence the name. Her use of this ubiquitous office product, found in offices throughout the United States provides the means of exploring her Filipino American heritage and finding connection to a place that she is separated from.
