Time and Place
Opening night – Friday, June 21, 2019
Join us for Evicted, an exhibition based on Matthew Desmond’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book. The exhibit is free to the public and on display from June 21 through September 30. It will be open on Fridays from 5 – 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Following a successful run at the National Building Museum in Washington D.C., the exhibition begins its national tour at the UWM SARUP Mobile Design Box in Milwaukee’s Near West Side. Evicted is an immersive exhibition that introduces visitors to the intimate, painful process of low-income renter eviction. Inspired by Matthew Desmond’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book about eviction in Milwaukee, the experience presents data developed by Desmond’s Eviction Lab and features original photography and audio examining reasons for and the fallout from eviction.
In conjunction with Evicted, UWM School of Architecture and Urban Planning (SARUP) faculty Allyson Nemec and Joy Peot-Shields present the studio Finding Home – Architectural Solutions to America’s Homeless Crisis, an exploration of homelessness in America from an architectural perspective and offering creative methods for temporary solutions.
Near West Side Partners thanks the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, the Zilber Family Foundation and anonymous donors for their generous support of this exhibition, as well as Wiegand Enterprises for the exhibit space.
