Asian Art Museum

Location Address 200 Larkin Street

City San Francisco



The first-ever retrospective of the iconic Filipino American artist and educator Carlos Villa (1936-2013), this exhibition showcases vibrant, large-scale works that have not been seen in decades.

Villa forged a new kind of art-world inclusion in San Francisco in the 1970s and 1980s by referencing influences from African, Asian, and Oceanic traditions and including materials as diverse as hair, spit, sperm, bones, shells, feathers, mirrors, and silk. His radical art, activism, and teaching career impacted a generation of artists and redirected the trajectory of contemporary art movements.
