The Filipino Primitive
The Filipino Primitive: Accumulation and Resistance in the American Museum by Sarita Echavez See draws interdisciplinary and intermedial connections among anthropology, museum curation, visual culture, performance, and literature. The theoretical optic through which she views Carlos Bulosan, Stephanie Syjuco, the Carl Guthe artifacts, and the Frank Murphy Memorial Museum, is eclectic yet cohesive, establishing relations between diverse literary and visual texts, as well as between artifacts and exhibits.
