A spokesperson describes the event as follows:
"Carlos Villa: Worlds in Collision, co-organized by the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco and the San Francisco Art Institute, invites you into artist Carlos Villa’s (1936–2013) spectacular, visually magical worlds of feathers and bones, capes and masks, tattoos and blood. The first major museum retrospective dedicated to the work of a Filipino American artist—featuring many works rarely seen before—Worlds in Collision celebrates Villa's exuberant body of work and enduring influence as a teacher, curator, and activist. . . .Worlds in Collision is an opportunity for audiences to trace Villa’s movement-spanning career. The exhibition explores Villa’s San Francisco immigrant roots, his adaptation of non-Western creative traditions, and his still-vibrant impact on the art world today."
Alongside Carlos Villa's work, this exhibition also contains work by artists mentored by Villa:
