Pio Abad

Pio Abad joins KADIST in residence for three months to conduct research into narratives of exile and displacement from the ’70s and ’80s that brought Filipinos to California. Abad will gather muted or forgotten accounts of communities and individuals, and explore their roles in constructing American histories of empire and erasure.

Pio Abad’s solo exhibition, Kiss the Hand You Cannot Bite opens at KADIST San Francisco on Wednesday, June 5.
