A retrospective of work by Cities and Society students and alumni
This exhibition presents a collection of work produced and co-curated by current and former students from the MA Cities and Society, based in the Centre for Urban and Community Research.
Navigating Urban Life takes us on a journey through street corners, community gardens, housing campaigns, transport networks and institutional spaces, and asks visitors to dwell, play, listen, and feel the ways in which different communities continue to survive and shape these spaces. The exhibition brings together a range of perspectives, and creative research practices, through which we try to make sense of the spaces, places and social worlds that we inhabit.
Through exhibiting a selection of urban stories in the context of New Cross’ historic bath house, the curators hope to bring attention to the politics of storytelling. By asking who the city belongs to, the show presents a challenge to our understanding of urban inequalities and reveals some of the tensions between contested versions of the city.
Contributors include: Antonio Brown, Hari Byles, Maxim Gertler-Jaffe, Chloe Hur, Stefanie Lai, Renata Cleaver Malzoni, Mai Omer, Santiago Rivas, and Xinlin Song
The exhibition is produced and curated by Emily Ballard, Hari Byles, Renata Cleaver Malzoni, and Natalie Smith.
