The Gentrification of Brooklyn

Taking cues from familiar movie poster themes, I love these promotional posters created by street artist Gabriel Reese aka Specter on behalf of the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) for an upcoming exhibit on the gentrification of Brooklyn.

This exhibition, guest curated by Dexter Wimberly, will examine how urban planning, eminent domain, and real estate development are affecting Brooklyn’s communities and how residents throughout the borough are responding. The exhibition will include the works of several Brooklyn-based artists, as well as those who have been forced to relocate as a result of gentrification.
