Sanctuary: Multi-channel video Installation by Nailah Jefferson & Laurie Sumiye

May 8, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us at the Small Center 1725 Baronne St) next Monday, May 8th from 5-7pm, for a Pop-Up Video Installation by current Rising: Climate in Crisis residents Artists-in-Residence Nailah Jefferson and Laurie Sumiye’s.

This immersive, work-in-progress video installation delves into memory and tides of “urban renewal” in communities of color in New Orleans and Honolulu. In the displacement of lives impacted by ocean-level rise, “invaders” change the make-up of local neighborhoods. Invasive species, such as the ubiquitous Cat’s Claw vine (Uncaria tomentosa) in New Orleans represent the creeping of both climate change and rampant gentrification.⁠
