Sarita Garcia and I have an interactive piece as part of this group show. Our piece sets out to challenge the complex conversation of gentrification and the roles of people from Pilsen or people who are visiting. The work encourages people to have a dialogue on their personal histories, memories, and share suggestions on how to be an ally in a community that is fully gentrified.

"An exhibition picking, prying and peeling off the layers of gentrification in Pilsen. To expose, let breathe, and share with others what the turmoil and dismantling of a community’s heart looks and feels like. Shown through the work of each artist and activist, the different experiences, documentation, reactions and actions towards defending and protecting neighborhoods like Pilsen. "
