Community Discussion & Outro: Gentrification in Portland: An Exhibition and an Issue
October 1, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us on the occasion of the closing of Our City in Stereo, Sharita Towne’s current exhibition at Newspace addressing the issue of gentrification in Portland, for a discussion reflecting on the knowledge gathered in the course of the exhibition. Towne will lead a conversation with collaborators about the residency and exhibition, and invited community members will present the work they’re doing to address multiple issues as Portland undergoes foundational changes to its population, configuration and policies.
This event is presented in conjunction with Sharita Towne’s current exhibition Our City in Stereo at Newspace Center for Photography (in collaboration with c3:initiative), examining gentrification in Portland through images, sound, and historical texts. The exhibition runs through October 1, 2016.
