The Union for Contemporary Art
The Union for Contemporary Art is hosting the exhibit “Undesign the Redline,” which draws from a wealth of archival materials and traces a clear line of institutionalized housing discrimination from the 1930s through today. To date, the exhibit has brought more than 600 individuals to the corner of 24th and Lake to learn about systemic racism and redlining, and to engage in dialogue about how these racist histories might be undone.
The Union is inviting community members to share their testimony on how the legacy of Redlining has impacted their personal lived experiences and how the exhibition has moved, changed, or spurred those visiting it. The complimentary project, “Stories from the Redline,” begins this December and runs through January, with the mission of further deepening community connection and bringing long-hidden truths to light with the hope of inspiring change. People are invited to share their personal stories regarding Redlining and its impact in their lives.
