Join the Asian American Women Artists Association and Japanese American Museum of San Jose for a multimedia exhibition featuring 9 local and national artists inspired by the rich history of Japanese American agricultural crafts, legacies and present-day community placemaking.
Artwork will include paintings, sculptures, films and multimedia installations inspired by a diverse range of subjects including artists’ own family farms along the west coast, local activities such as strawberry picking, agriculture-related mythological figures such as the Goddess of Rice and kitsune (fox), the contemporary relationship of farming labor practices and eco-justice, and the agricultural connection between Japan the Americas. Agrarianaa artworks will be in dialog with the permanent collection of the Japanese American Museum of San Jose, which chronicles more than a century of Japanese American history.
The opening will feature a participatory art piece from Ginger Brooks Takahashi, along with food, refreshments and more.
