Carlos Villa: Worlds in Collision

Lee Gallery, Osher Foundation Gallery

Carlos Villa: Worlds in Collision celebrates the exuberant work and enduring influence of San Francisco artist Carlos Villa (1936–2013). The first major museum retrospective dedicated to the work of a Filipino American artist, this groundbreaking exhibition shows us Villa not only as one of the most important artists of his generation, but also as a teacher, curator, activist, and community organizer.
