Red Line Archive

Can an artist intervention translate contested spacial and racial narratives that define the real and imagined landscape of a New York? The Red Line Archive is a mobile public art project that engages New York City residents in a conversation about race and the history of the 1938 Red Line Map that helped create the segregated urban landscapes of the city. This “cabinet of curiosities” is wheeled along city streets, inviting people to freely associate about artifacts from the artist’s family history in gentrifying Brooklyn, Loisaida and Stuyvesant Town along 14th Street from First Avenue to Avenue C.
