Displacement Closing Reception...
Studio 23 is working with local artist Gerado Chow on putting together a show called Displacement in December. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Just Cause Justa Causa displacement services in the bay area. http://cjjc.org/
Hi friends, a while back I posted that I was interested in doing an art show about "Gentrification." Artists have always been used as a stepping stone in converting low income neighborhoods into hip and happening places where money can be invested. Only then does the City care enough to start cleaning it up so folks with money can begin to move into remodeled residential buildings after old residents get evicted. This show is an opportunity for all artist to do what we do best express our feelings and emotions about this growing virus that is affecting so many low income neighborhoods, and allow them to showcase conscious work that speaks against Displacement’s atrocities rather then disguising it.
CALL FOR ART:
Please let me know if you would like to participate. The show will take place at Studio 23 Gallery in Alameda thanks to my good friends Jessica and Wesley Warren. Send your submissions to [masked] write displacement on the subject heading. If you can't participate let me know and I'll take your name of the send list. Thank you!
Deadline NOVEMBER 15TH.
