As part of the Institute of Arts & Humanities Challenging Conversations and Community, Arts & Resistance event series, this lecture will feature two esteemed guest speakers that will bring unique perspectives on the interconnection of art, community, development and gentrification.
The first speaker is Professor Eric Avila, Chair of the Cesar E. Chavez Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies and Professor of History and Urban Planning at UCLA. Professor Avila will present on ‘Race, Displacement, and Development in L.A.: Lessons from the Past,’ sharing Histories of Bunker Hill, Boyle Heights, Chavez Ravine and Redevelopment in L.A.
The second speaker is San Diego artist and educator, Rizzhel Javier, who uses art and photography to explore personal, community and global connection. Ms. Javier will discuss personal and community projects that have activated public dialogue on a variety of social and emotional issues relevant to San Diego through participatory art making and social practice workshops.
The audience is invited and encouraged to participate in the discussion, during the question and answer session following the talk.
Following the audience question and answer session is the opening reception of the art exhibit Reclaim! Remain! Rebuild! Posters on Affordable Housing, Gentrification & Resistance, from the Center for the Study of Political Graphics. Complimentary light refreshments and beverages will be available to attendees.
Those wishing to view the exhibit only, are encouraged to arrive to the space at 7:15pm. Additionally, the exhibit will be available to view independently from February 7–March 15, 2019.
Paid visitor parking is available at the Gilman Parking Structure and the Osler Parking Structure - both approximately a 10-15 minute walk to the gallery. Please review maps prior and allow extra time to navigate to the parking lot and venue before the event starts, to account for rush hour traffic and construction on campus.
