Saturday, February 6: Two more MoCADA programs for the Gentrification Exhibit

The Artists Speak Out and "Housing is a Human Right" Reception
Saturday, February 6, 2010 2:00pm - 4:30pm Free to the public

Several of the exhibiting artists will speak out about their work and the effects of Gentrification on their creative process. Exhibition curator, Dexter Wimberly will lead a "straight talk" discussion on the exhibition theme and the curatorial process.

"Housing is a Human Right" Reception
Saturday, February 6, 2010 6:00pm - 8pm (RSVP Required)
Refreshments will be served.

Please join Brooklyn artists, Michael Premo and Rachel Falcone at the Adriala Gallery for a showcase of their work "Housing is a Human Right: Stories from the Struggle for Home," an ongoing multimedia documentary portrait of the struggle for homes in New York City. Composed of oral narratives and photographs, along with testimonies and memories of home, woven and remixed with the help of turntablist DJ Oja Vincent, this collection of viscerally honest, first-person narratives serve as a reminder that home is as tenuous a space in New York City as the shelter that sustains it.

This event will take place at the Adriala Gallery (57 Putnam Avenue (corner of Irving Place), Brooklyn, NY 11238). The exhibition, "Housing is a Human Right" will be on view at the Adriala Gallery every Saturday from 12pm - 6pm (February 6th - March 27th) or by appointment at 646.208.8214
