Of SeedSoil, and Stars brings together six interdisciplinary artists who collaborate with earth and communities, using soil, rainwater, and natural pigments as material. Together, their work explores the relationships between the land and body and between migration and memory. The exhibition asks, “How does the impact of colonial extractive processes and resulting diasporic related traumas move us towards reimagining and recreating right relationship with lands and bodies?”

Featuring artworks by Jackie Amézquita, Sarita Doe, Jess Gudiel, JEM, LaRissa Rogers, and a closing performance by Maria Maea.

Of SeedSoil, and Stars is supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture, and the Pasadena Art Alliance. Special thanks to our friends at USC Roski School of Art and Design for their support while LACE’s Hollywood gallery is under renovation.
