About this Event

Isugid Pinoy! (ee-soo-ghid), is “tell it Pilipino!” in the Philippine Bisayan language. Presented by Kularts, the premiere presenter of contemporary and tribal Pilipinx art in the United States, Isugid Pinoy! is a graphic storytelling project led by visual artists Don Aguillo and Rafael “Raf” Salazar in partnership with members of the SOMA Pilipinas community to reflect and celebrate the diversity of the Pilipino American experience.

Aguillo and Salazar will have their first major exhibition of Isugid Pinoy! comic book art at the third floor of the main branch of the San Francisco Public Library from October 5, 2019 to January 23, 2020. Featuring large scale renditions and specially layed out panels of comic book art, the exhibition’s opening reception on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at 4 p.m. includes a ritual performance of sagayan, an indigenous dance of Maguindanao and Maranao people in the Philippines, led by Aguillo and Salazar. The exhibition is free and open to the public during library hours.
