Examining the Intersection of Art and Gentrification in New York City
Cristina Ferrigno's MFA Project under Social Practice Queens

I asked 5 NYC based artists to respond to prompts on the intersectionof the art world and the gentrification of New York City.

Now, I invite you, fellow NYC based creatives, to examine art’s rolein the changing landscape of the city and your own role in it:

The impact of gentrification on your neighborhood, give examples of art that subvert the dynamics, the role of POC bourgeoisie & Gentefication and what does sustainability look like in terms of community and the urban landscape?
Welcome, please take your time and answer the applicable questions.

What is your role in the city? *
If your neighborhood has experienced gentrification, how has it intersected with the arts if at all?
Is there a particular work or artist that subverts the dynamics of gentrification that you feel works especially well and why?
*For POC folks only* What are your thoughts on the concept of younger, wealthier or more educated POC/Queer folks displacing folks in existing marginalized communities? --See concept of Gentefication. How has this informed your politics and/or practice?
In thinking about Sustainability in terms of lasting impact, how have your ideas lived on after you've physically left a place or community?
Are you a gentrifier? *
