Urban Interruptions, an exhibition
In Urban Interruptions, students in the project-based course Green Corridor are exploring interdisciplinary methods for community building in light of gentrification. In the form of agricultural, architectural, historical, environmental, social, and spatial interruptions, seven installations come together to negotiate the stakes for people being impacted by urban revitalization in Windsor’s historical west end district named Old Sandwich Towne. In the context of the Green Corridor’s mandate to re-imagine public space through discourses of community engagement, green development, and sustainability, the artists in this class are ultimately asking one main question: how can the politics of gentrification not only initiate economic growth in a community, but also reinvent public space for the bodies living and experiencing urban interruptions in 2019?
