SOMARTS' Placed/Displaced Opens this Week

Another show about contemporary changes in the Bay Area opens this week at SOMArts, in partnership with the Bayview Opera House. Opening reception is Friday, Nov 20th, 6-9pm. See http://www.somarts.org/placedisplaced for more info and other events. 

Place/Displaced invites everyone to the table to explore the role we each play in a changing Bay Area in the present moment, marked by an unprecedented increase in Ellis Act evictions, Black flight and the outmigration caused by an affordability crisis. More than 40 participating artists and groups use their various creative practices to recall and record diasporic histories, reveal complex identities and address issues of cultural preservation. Included artworks and installations envision new possibilities for cities in transition, and the financial and spiritual well-being of their inhabitants.
