Hispanic Heritage Week: "Collective Dreams"
ARGOT IS CELEBRATING HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH THROUGH ARTWORK.
From the artist: “From an indigenous/POC perspective, community is not only survival, but it’s essential to thrive. The inability to have healthy inter-generational/cultural connections is the result of genocide and colonization. The work incorporates symbols of the past in a way that reestablishes indigenous cultural relevancy in the present, a dream of a post-colonial and indigenous future.”
Paradise is a queer gender non-binary indigenous/mixed child currently based out of Oakland. Since 2008, they’ve been weaponizing art/literature through unwavering themes of anarchist critique and creating radical forms of community in order to subvert and wage war with the American capitalist machine from every facet of our daily lives.
