New Histories: The Gadsden Farm Project is an installation part of a larger project collaborating with Quincy farmers, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, and the State of Florida to bring awareness about rural farming communities in Gadsden county. Artists Michael Austin Diaz and Holly Hanessian worked with the State of Florida Folklorist and Photographer to interview and document the agricultural histories of 12 people from Gadsden County. The project demonstrates the combined power of community and contemporary practice. The installation features interviews and photographs of the farmers along with a table with commemorative plates made by Hanessian to be gifted to the Quincy farmers.
