Built with Indexhibit
The exhibition narrative of Untold Stories Youngstown objectified outmoded imagery of my blighted ‘Rust Belt’ hometown and employed these symbols as allegories to evoke questions about neighborhood decay and gentrification, segregation and integrated cities, generations of unemployment and economic redevelopment. Exhibited at the Tyler History Center, I created archival photographic interventions, juxtaposed materials selected from the holdings of the Mahoning Valley Historical Society with my prints, and interviewed community members on-camera for two videos, one titled Youngstown and the other Steel City.
