Take a closer look at the changing Mission with the exhibition, Massive Urban Change. The five-week project, a collaboration of artists Eliza Gregory and Nicole Lavelle, creates a space for nuanced dialogue about neighborhood evolution amidst the polarized debates currently surrounding San Francisco's Mission District.
Composed of visual, sculptural and conversational components, Massive Urban Change zooms in and zooms out on the controversies by calling attention to historical context while also prioritizing individual experiences within the neighborhood.
The installation begins with a photograph of Mission Street between 15th and 30th Streets. With a nod to Ed Ruscha’s Sunset Strip, this panoramic series will snake around the gallery walls and provide the first layer of what will become a collaged, narrative map of neighborhood evolution, hope, frustration and reinvention.
