This Bushwick Art Show Will Showcase Works Documenting Life in Public Housing

"Beyond Bricks and Mortar: Stories of Community and Resilience from Public Housing" opens at Silent Barn's Disclaimer Gallery on Friday, September 9th.

Daily life in public housing is the subject of an upcoming exhibit at Silent Barn art space Disclaimer Gallery. The gallery, which aims to be a platform for marginalized communities, will host a multimedia show that has been planned and curated by the citywide arts education organization More Art and local youth group Casa Experimental, which opens on Friday, September 9th, the day after the city's public school students return to classes after summer recess.

"Beyond Bricks and Mortar: Stories of Community and Resilience from Public Housing" is co-organized by the two groups with the support of oral historian Cynthia Tobar and the photojournalist Aldo Soligno.

Organizers say the multimedia exhibition "seeks to highlight the lives and experiences of public housing residents as they face changes in their communities as a result of diminishing affordable housing stock and gentrification."

"Through this project, we hope to inspire forceful action against the human rights violations inflicted on our forgotten neighbors in public housing," continues a statement about the show included on the Facebook event invitation for the opening.

The opening begins at 6 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m.; it's free and open to the public.
