A.I.R. Gallery looks at Reproduction Rights in the USA

The historic feminist gallery presents a new work, Trigger Planting, by the collective ‘How To Perform an Abortion’

in Frieze New York , News | 09 MAY 22

For Frieze New York 2022, A.I.R. Gallery will present Trigger Planting, a work by the current collaborators of the collective ‘How To Perform an Abortion’, a learning and art project that demystifies the historical, biological and ethical controversies surrounding fertility management. 

The group includes architect Kadambari Baxi, visual artist Maureen Connor, visual artist and gardener Landon Newton and the National Women’s Liberation. This work will bring attention to the current state of reproduction rights in the US by using herbs, which for thousands of years people have employed to manage fertility, to mark a map of the United States where trigger laws will ban abortion if the historic Roe v. Wade ruling is overturned.
