Agrarianaa: Art Inspired by APA Agricultural Roots

Agrarianaa is a multimedia exhibition featuring 25 artists and farmers rooted in the rich history of Asian Pacific American agricultural crafts, legacies and community placemaking. Artists in the show reflect on ancestral farming and gardening practices, addressing topics such as migrant labor, environmental activism, land and food sovereignty. Works range from installations mapping out food ways, hand-dyed textiles woven from the spiritual cultivation of the earth, grassroots solidarity among the United Farm Workers movement and more. Agrarianaa includes artists all highlighting how a regenerative agricultural ecosystem can sprout into the resilient spaces necessary to heal and thrive in community.
