Eugenic History Of Southern Agriculture With Sub Rosa says
This event will take place in two parts
PART I : Noticing walk
Monday 6pm
Join subRosa in a perambulation along the neighborhood streets surrounding Murmur, as we look for signs of current and historic appropriation of life materials in downtown Atlanta. How are The Gradys, the Georgia Department of Agriculture, the Southern Tenant Farmer’s Union, The Populist Party, and projects by arts and music venues downtown connected to histories of Eugenics, gentrification, public health and housing, and Southern Agriculture?

PART II: Open gallery and reception
9am-5pm subRosa encourages you to drop by to ask questions and participate with the installation
6:30p reception
subRosa invites you to an open house reception, and discussion of their installation “Cell Track: Mapping the Appropriation of Life Materials,” which we are adapting and expanding to reflect a "Eugenic History of Southern Agriculture." subRosa will show documentation of several art projects, and discuss how we incorporate maps, zines, and audience participation into our interdisciplinary research-based feminist art practice.

ABOUT subRosa
subRosa is a mutable (cyber)feminist cell of cultural researchers committed to combining art, social activism, and politics to explore and critique the intersections of information and bio technologies on women’s bodies, lives and work.

subRosa’s name honors feminist pioneers in art, activism, labor, science, and politics: Rosa Bonheur, Rosa Luxemburg, Rosie the Riveter, Rosa Parks and Rosie Franklin (to name a few).

Since its founding in 1998, subRosa has developed a situated, trans-disciplinary, performative, and discursive art practice that strives to create open-ended environments where participants engage with objects, texts, digital technologies, and critical learning experiences interacting with each other and subRosa. We make visible the interconnections of technology, gender, and difference; feminism and global capital; new bio and medical technologies and women’s health; and the changed conditions of labor and reproduction for women in the integrated circuit.

subRosa practices a situational embodied feminist politics nourished by conviviality, self-determination, and the desire for affirmative alliances and coalitions.

subRosa has performed, exhibited, lectured and published in the USA, Spain, Britain, Holland, Germany, Croatia, Macedonia, Mexico, Canada, Slovenia, Austria, and Singapore, and has received many commissions for its work as well as funding from the Creative Capital Foundation, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon.

Current members are Faith Wilding and Hyla Willis.
