The Abangguard is the Brown vanguard reclaiming the avant-garde


Jevijoe Vitug’s project-based practice ranges from painting, objects, performance to community engaged work. Drawn from his personal experience as an immigrant who constantly moves from one place to another, his projects are connected to the notion of reinvention amidst diversity of contradictions.

Born in 1977 in the Philippines and currently lives and works in New York, Vitug’s processes focus on how to negotiate hybrid identities in response to constant change by creating a confluence of the past and the future, dream and reality, invisibility and visibility, the local and the global.
