Sliver by the River


Maxx Sizeler

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: \"Many of the \'sliver by the river\' residents have always avoided the sight of many poorer neighborhoods with their dilapidated housing. My son, who now lives in Wisconsin, said while riding though some of the poorer, now destroyed sections, \'the buildings were crap before the storm, now what? will it be better.\" Gideon Stanton\"\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\r\n
