Conversations with the Assembly

Conversations with the Assembly is a podcast produced by Cristian Tablazon in conversation with the inaugural cohort of the Regional Assembly. Foregrounding personal and networked histories, their distinct voices, and the imbrications of their diverse practices with the nuances of identity, locality, and place, the relations of production, and the broader geopolitical life, each episode will amplify, challenge, and entwine the many threads of discourse and dialogue that unfold during the Regional Assembly.

Cristian Tablazon is an artist and curator who lives and works in Los Baños, Laguna in the Philippines, where he co-runs Nomina Nuda, a small nonprofit curatorial platform and exhibition space.

I feel like there's a lot of potential in the space of art...especially at this time, to be able to hold space for the messiness, the chaos, the undoing of familiar logics and patterns and wirings of the world and of our brain. The empowerment and the agency that art and creative practices can offer are really integral as well to understand each of our own creative potential and agency.

I became really passionate about making work which was having a conversation about how our weaving techniques need to be recognized as the first forms of Australian textiles. It’s important to reflect on these techniques and then look at materials in the present day and think about how these techniques have informed the things that we live with, wear, and carry today...
