Eight illuminated map panels documenting "relined" areas of Richmond, Virginia in 1923.
At the base of the installation is a red LED rope, emphasizing the reality of the practice of redlining for immigrants and African Americans who lived in nearby neighborhoods.
The installation was located at 401 W Broad Street, Richmond, VA,
at Moore's Auto Body Shop, an historic African American enterprise listed
on the National Register of History Sites.
During the entire run of the exhibition, the artist engaged with viewers
in conversations about the origins of redlining,
the effect on Richmond's urban environment,
and about the future of the city.
After a century of depleted resources to the urban core,
how can we recreate a vibrant city center?
