Currently on view at James Fuentes, New York is “The Real Estate Show,” a revisited seminal exhibition which took place in 1980 at 123 Delancey Street. Organized by Colab, a group comprised of artists and activists to collectively generate exhibition opportunities, funding and resources for artists, “The Real Estate Show” took place in a city owned building that the organizers and artists utilized without permission form the city. The exhibition aimed to deal with what they saw as a real estate crisis in New York City for the non-wealthy, the group dedicated the exhibition to Elizabeth Magnum, an African American woman killed by police and marshals as she resisted eviction in Flatbush.
“The Real Estate Show” is on view through April 27, 2014.
