ANGEL O’LEARY

[Un] Gentrify This is intended as a way to have people stop and think about what they value about where they live. Most of the boxes have the names of two businesses from Seattle neighborhoods: on one side is the newer business, and on the other side the older business it replaced. You have to choose between the old and the new, between culture and convenience. The artists are trying to present a way for people to consider how they feel about gentrification through playful action.



[Un] Gentrify This was a collaboration between myself, Barry Johnson, and Ashley Rang, conceived and developed during Your [ ____ ] Neighborhood, cycle 5 of Forward Flux Productions’ collaborate create 21 day residency program in Seattle, May 2015. The artists of Your [ ____ ] Neighborhood explored concepts centered around Gentrification.
