After decades of neglect Chicago’s South Side is getting some attention. But of what sort, and what does it mean?
SURFACES is about our relationship to place and time. A moment when we can gather and talk about the positive and negative changes within the community underneath larger-than-life videos of the people and landscape of Greater Grand Crossing. Ferrari wants to highlight how we treat/value property versus how we treat/value ourselves and show signs of change through a community based media project.
A special thanks to the people of the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood and the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events for their support of the project.
Though this is a free outdoor public event we kindly ask for you to RSVP so that we may gauge the approximate attendance.http://rebuild-foundation.squarespace.com/upcoming-programs/2015/6/21/surfaces
