Carlos Villa: Infinite Self

Friends Indeed Gallery 716 Sacramento Street, San Fransisco

His works from the 1970s and 80s deftly reject the ethnographic terms historically ascribed to non-Western art. Combining repetitive action, performance, and activism, his abstract assemblages are visually dramatic expressions of Filipino-American identity.

We are all outsiders, Asian artists living abroad, and their deep friendship has offered me a ground on where I can stand and embrace my own identity.

Sites of Memory

UTA Artist Space 403 Foothill Rd., Beverly Hills
