Building for Us: Stories of Homesteading and Cooperative Housing

Exhibition Opening: October 17, 2019, 7-9pm
Exhibition Dates: October 17, 2019 to February 2, 2020

In the early 1970s, government disinvestment in New York City, coupled with widespread landlord abandonment, gave rise to squatting, urban homesteading, and other forms of self-help housing. The Urban Homesteading Assistance Board (UHAB) grew out of the self-help housing movement. This exhibition features the people who fought to turn vacant or neglected buildings into vibrant co-ops, illuminating the origins of New York City’s affordable housing cooperatives.

Like the Waters, We Rise: Climate Justice in Print, pt.1

November 21st, 2019–April 17th, 2020
Opening event: November 21st, 6–9pm
This part of this exhibition is not at Interference Archive

Artists have long been at the heart of this movement, finding bold, inspiring ways to help uplift struggles, reveal connections between climate and intersecting issues, build public support, and paint a picture of the world we are working to create. Like the Waters, We Rise tells the story of this expansive climate justice movement through a collection of print-based works developed as part of—or inspired by—occupations, direct actions, and mass mobilizations. Taken together, these works show the many terrains of struggle, points of intervention, and solutions of this continually expanding movement of movements.
