Pancaked Buildings

Maxx Sizeler

Anonymous comment card written in response to an exhibit by artist Maxx Sizeler at 2426 Bradish Place on May 19, 2007.\r\n\r\nComplete text of card: \"I\'m not sure if this counts, since they still exist, although not as buildings, per se, but there are, throughout the city, several former buildings that have pancaked down, so that they have basically become a roof sitting, tilted, on the ground. Sad as it must be for the owners, I am rather fond of these.\" \r\n\r\n\"NEIGHBORHOODS: 2426 BRADISH PLACE\" was a multidisciplinary installation, the third in a series, that took place in the gutted ground floor of the home of Michelle Levine and Clay Thomas on May 19th, 2007. Michelle is an artist who is currently rebuilding her house and studio in the Tulane/Gravier neighborhood. Through the use of interviews with neighbors, soundscapes, live music, drawing, photography, and sculpture, this event confronted the range of issues the community is experiencing as they revitalize this neighborhood.\r\n
