Interesting, especially if you live in NYC. Via Architects Newspaper.
In a city where “how much is your rent?” is a perfectly acceptable icebreaker, it’s second nature to look into the windows of a NYCHA high-rise, or though the scaffolding of an under-construction luxury tower, and wonder, “what’s it like to live there?” A new public art project initiated by Jennifer Dalton and William Powhida lets participants satisfy their voyeurism through a residency series, short-term stays in sample New York City “affordable” and “luxury” units.
Powhida and Dalton have worked together since 2008, although MONTH2MONTH is their first collaboration since 2012. Produced by social justice nonprofit More Art, MONTH2MONTH’s 4-day residencies are augmented by a monthlong calendar of public events that invite housing activists, politicians, artists, “doormen, financial journalists, and other stakeholders” to discuss how class, wealth, and race intersect to affect the ability of different groups to live in New York.
