Carlos Villa: Worlds In Collision Exhibit Poster
The exhibit is on view at The Newark Museum of Art on February 17, 2022 to May 8, 2022 and is co-organized with The San Francisco Art Institute and Asian Art Museum.
A central figure in California's multicultural activism in the 1970's, Carlo Villa worked with feather, bones, and tattoo iconography, reflecting non-Western cultural alliances. Villa has been described as the preeminent Filipino American artist—a legend in artistic circles for his groundbreaking approaches and his influence on countless artists—but he remains little known to many fans and scholars of modern and contemporary art.
Villa was trained at the San Francisco Art Institute in the 1950s as an abstract expressionist, and over time he transformed his practice to address issues of ethnic and cultural diversity. He was a theorist, curator, and organizer of public forums and assumed a leadership role in "Third World" and "multicultural" international art movements.
