5:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Activista Happy Hour is a monthly gathering of social movement activists in NYC. We are excited to partner with Movement Space Project and CAAAV to co-host December’s gathering!
For this happy hour, Interference Archive will be hosting a special open house from 5:30-7:30 pm, which will be followed by drinks at Halyards down the block. This is a great opportunity to check our space out, and to see IA’s latest exhibition “Serve the People: The Asian American Movement in New York.”
Curated by Ryan Wong, “Serve the People” charts a history of Asian American activism, organizing, and cultural production in the 1970s. It is the first exhibition to focus on New York as a center of this national phenomenon. Through posters, leaflets, newspapers, film, and music, “Serve the People” shows how Asian American identity was shaped by reclaimed histories, revolutionary politics, feminist awareness, third worldism, and community organizing. The culture created by young activists and artists in the movement embodied their ideals, speaking to the excitement and urgency of the time. Read more here:
