I was happy to discover that opening next week at MoCADA, Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, is an exhibit called The Gentrification of Brooklyn: The Pink Elephant Speaks. Finally!
From MoCADA’s press release:
This exhibition, guest curated by Dexter Wimberly, will examine how urban planning, eminent domain, and real estate development are affecting Brooklyn’s communities and how residents throughout the borough are responding. The exhibition will include the works of several Brooklyn-based artists, as well as those who have been forced to relocate as a result of gentrification. In addition to works of art featured at MoCADA, there will be a schedule of public programs taking place throughout Brooklyn.
Below are billboards I quite like done by Toronot0-based artists, Specter, in Promotion of the upcoming exhibit:
