Artists Resisting Gentrification

Artists are often deemed harbingers of gentrification or pawns in neighborhood rebranding. Yet they can also take charge of their communities’ future by bringing attention to economic pressures and pushing for protections for long-term residents. Sharon Zukin, Brooklyn College and CUNY Graduate Center professor of sociology and author of Naked City: The Death and Life of Authentic Urban Places, leads a conversation on artists taking action with Arts East NY Founder and Executive Director Catherine Green, artist Martha Rosler,and artist William Powhida.
