Nice write up Jen!

The show was amazing to watch come together- and a true delight to be a part of. Working in setting in which on one level artists were able to play in very open, non-gallery type situations, but with this very full knowledge of the development of this block. What I mean is that while some work references the demolition/moving of the houses, and some is more playful and/or creating their own works. Each piece has a very visible extra layer of meaning with the knowledge of what will happen, shortly, to these old residences.
