art / regeneration

In last week’s Reading Loop, we began to talk about the problematic issue of urban regeneration and the role art (sometimes unwittingly) plays in the process of gentrification.

In the next session (Reading Loop Wednesday February 1st), we’ll be exploring these issues some more. Sam has proposed a number of supplementary readings – listed below – which may be of interest in this regard.

“The Fine Art of Gentrification”, by Rosalyn Deutsche and Cara Gendel Ryan
