SOFT SOLIDARITY (SoS): Uniting to Protect, Heal, and Empower
May 18, 2022 – August 28, 2022
Pearl River Mart Gallery
New York, NY
Presented in partnership with the Asian American Arts Alliance, SOFT SOLIDARITY: UNITING TO PROTECT, EMPOWER, AND HEAL is a group exhibition that explores how Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) as a diverse and varied community can unite in the face of adversity and discrimination.
It features women-identifying artists who share a love for contemporary art and traditional craft. Their work delves into the idea of “soft solidarity,” a kind of loose unity unconstrained by background, location, or socioeconomic status, and how seemingly contrasting attributes can exist simultaneously and in harmony — softness and strength, pliability and power, delicacy and danger.
