In celebration of Filipino American History Month in October, the Filipino American Center of the San Francisco Public Library in conjunction with Kularts, is pleased to present the exhibit, Kodakan: Pilipinos in the City, beginning October 19, 2013 and running through January 23, 2014.
Program: On Oct.19th, 12:30-1:30pm, Kodakan Panel will be one of the featured events in the 2nd Filipino American International Book Festival running from Oct. 18th through Oct. 20th at the Main branch.
Kodakan (The generic Filipino term for taking photos derived from the known camera brand Kodak.) explores changing expressions of Pilipino cultural identity through the simple act of snapshot photography. Artists Wilfred Galila and Peggy Peralta, with assistance from Cece Carpio, create playful photo homage to the vintage photos found in the book, Filipinos in San Francisco and the San Francisco Historical Photograph Collection of the SF History Center located on the 6th floor of the Main library.
Founded in 1985, Kularts is the premier presenter of contemporary and tribal Pilipino arts in the United States. It is a non-profit arts organization based in San Francisco, California.
