For her latest solo project with La Mama, Adriana Farmiga presents HA HA FRESH- a body of work including drawings and sculptures. The exhibition, centered around the theme of "the bodega", considers this ubiquitous urban corner shop as a site located between archive and social space. In the same way a bodega can centralize and serve a community, while simultaneously revealing its relationship with immigration and urban transitions, Farmiga's site-specific installation speaks to her own personal inventory of identity and (auto)biography.
