We're Open, Come In: The House Life Project
August 2 - 30, 2018
Collectors' Night - Thursday, August 2, 5 pm - 8 pm
First Friday - Friday, August 3, 6 pm - 9 pm
This month, Gallery 924 shares the work of the House Life Project (HLP), a community of artists and neighbors that was active on the Near Eastside between 2015 and 2017. Through artistic practice and community collaboration, the HLP used abandoned houses as sites for addressing neighborhood change and expanding the creative landscape in Indianapolis.
We’re Open, Come In is an inclusive and welcoming space that invites visitors to learn about the HLP, its methods, and its community. Through an array of artworks and interactive installations, the exhibition will spark conversations about neighborliness, housing inequity, and the ways in which art can and can’t facilitate social justice.
