MI CASA ES MI CASA (My House is My House) exhibition is intended to draw attention to the changes and resistance of the many culturally rich communities throughout New York City facing displacement. Developers and investors are reshaping in The Bronx, Harlem, and many communities throughout Brooklyn, and often done without the awareness and input of the member of the these communities. This show and workshop series hopes to address the question, “who will these changes benefit?”, afterall, MI CASA ES MI CASA. 

MI CASA ES MI CASA is curated by the House of Spoof Collective and funded by the John A. Reisenbach Foundation and THE POINT CDC.
