Presented in partnership with the Asian American Women Artists Association (AAWAA) and the Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center (APICC), Shifting Movements is a multimedia exhibition featuring over 40 artists primarily from Asian American, Black, and Latinx communities, illuminating the legacy of intersectional revolutionary social activist Yuri Kochiyama. The artworks highlight the values and themes which guided Kochiyama, and the incredibly diverse people, struggles, and movements that inspired a lifetime commitment to fighting for a more humane world. Honoring this legacy, Shifting Movement artists invite audiences to make connections between the past, present, and future – and each other, through work that showcases provocative art driven by a passion for social justice with the intent to re-ignite a community of humankind.
