In this group show, curated by UW Bothell lecturer Dr. Thea Quiray Tagle, indigenous and Asian Pacific American artists use art and performance to begin the work of healing from military occupation, economic displacement, and environmental catastrophe. Through a suite of multimedia works, Super Futures Haunt Collective (SFHQ) stages a conversation among indigenous ancestors, using technology and imagination to bridge time and space. Their work serves as a hinge to connect artists Alejandro T. Acierto, Rea Tajiri, Michael Arcega, and Leeroy New, who critically examine the forces of colonialism and posit possible strategies for livability in an age that is "increasingly toxic for the poor to live in."
