KULARTS’ ISUGID PINOY!
Kularts’ Isugid Pinoy! exhibition (ee-soo-ghid), meaning tell it Pilipino in the Philippine Bisayan language, explores the diverse stories of five anchor organizations of the state and city-wide recognized SOMA Pilipinas – Filipino Cultural Heritage District and reimagines them as graphic storytelling, comic collaborative artworks exhibited at Bindlestiff Studio, 185 6th Street, San Francisco, CA, April 12 – 28, 2018 concurrently during the run of The Geek Show 2: Bindlecon.
From the characters traits, costumes, to their heroic storylines, illustrators Don Aguillo and Rafael Salazar’s Isugid is driven by the ideas and narratives of members of the SOMA based businesses and organizations: Arkipelago Books, Bayanihan Community Center, Bindlestiff Studio, South of Market Community Action Network, and West Bay Pilipino Multi-Service Center.
On opening night of The Geek Show, Kularts will debut its first Isugid comic book, stories featuring Bindlestiff Studio and Arkipelago Books. Available for purchase at Bindlestiff Studio, April 12, 2018, then while supplies last at Arkipelago Books.
