For this site-specific installation, I initiated the project through community engagement, conducting workshops with teenagers in programs at Wave Hill and at Casita Maria, two Bronx-based cultural institutions. The students created collages using appropriated images that the artist provided, including 18th-century newspaper etchings, 1920s and ‘30s political cartoons, children’s book illustrations and architectural drawings of New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) buildings in the Bronx. A collective narrative emerged through this collaboration.
