Intersections was a public art project that aimed to open a portal for change. In her recent practice, Sara Rivera has been documenting and researching Boston construction zones, particularly contentious high-rises, in an attempt to understand some of Boston's changing social demographics. This project build on that process; Urbano youth artists will reflect on urban displacement as a type of upheaval affecting Egleston today, and will address how the process of gentrification gradually "others" people within their own communities. This project will utilize collaborative poetry and mobile, modular sculpture in site-specific performance and intervention.
