AFTER LIFE (what remains) is a multi-genre visual art and performance exhibition that stages a conversation between Asian Pacific American and Indigenous artists around the questions: what new strategies are needed to survive after environmental catastrophe and military intervention, by communities facing displacement and dispossession? How can speculation, humor, and fantasy fuel larger movements for social change around the Pacific Rim—from the Pacific Northwest, to California, to Southeast and East Asia—and in the heartland of the USA?
Featuring artists Alejandro T. Acierto, Michael Arcega, Leeroy New, Super Futures Haunt Qollective, and Rea Tajiri
AFTER LIFE (what remains) is funded in part by a grant from 4Culture, with additional support from UW Bothell School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences
