Central Library- 2nd Floor Display

October 11– November 13, 2023

Rizzhel Javier (San Diego, 1983) is a San Diego based artist and educator. Her work explores topics in identity, memory, culture and human relationships. As a first generation Filipino-American, Rizzhel uses her art practice to dissect her identity, and that of the larger Filipino-American community through the research and creation of art projects. She works autobiographically, using art to explore personal, community and global connection.


Landsick explores the hybridity of culture, complexity of intergenerational relationships and study of binational families. Through the archiving of family photos, Javier examines the literal and metaphorical impact of distance, between first generation Americans and their migrant ancestors. The installation pays tribute to family history, their place of origin and migration home.


Free art prints and buttons from the artist are available (while supplies last) at the 9th floor Art Gallery reference desk.
