AAWAA and APICC presents Sowing Agency:
Seeding The Future For Environmental Justice Exhibition
Sowing Agency Website | Virtual Gallery Experience | Safety Plan | Timed ticketing
Sowing Agency is inspired by the fight for environmental justice, activating our Asian Pacific Islander communities to engage in the issues of today’s climate crisis. With a number of artistic disciplines represented, the pieces featured in the show work to realign our relationships with the Earth through introspection and collective leadership. The exhibition’s broad coalition of community partners amplifies calls for increased action to challenge extractive industries, monocultures, corporate greed and colonization. Weaving local and global climate resistance into our cultural consciousness, Sowing Agency is a visual and poetic address to the grief and resiliency rooted in “seeding the future.”
This exhibition is presented in partnership with the Asian American Women Artists Association, Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center, SOMArts Cultural Center, Asian Art Museum along with community partners: Asian Pacific Environmental Network, Berkeley South Asian Radical History Walking Tour, South of Market Community Action Network and 18 Million Rising.
Funded in part by San Francisco Arts Commission, San Francisco Grants for the Arts, California Arts Council and Zellerbach Family Foundation and proudly sponsored by Rainbow Grocery.
