The Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts announces a survey exhibition of the works of Carlos Villa, circa 1970-2011. Influenced by investigations of his own Filipino heritage, the intricacies of immigrant identities and experiences, Villa’s work has consistently challenged the bounds of the “multicultural,” while resisting expectations that it remain there.

Manongs, Some Doors, and a Bouquet of Crates presents his latest body of work, minimalist engravings of time, meditation, and the human experience. His renowned “Doors” series from the 1970s will be exhibited in the MCCLA Main Gallery. Select drawings, photographs, and ceremonial attire will also be on display ― visual metaphors for the intercultural weaving that is the essence of his work. This exhibition is funded in part by The San Francisco Foundation.
