Rivington Street, New York, NY
Complementing the exhibition at James Fuentes Gallery of original work from the Real Estate Show of 1980, this show features new work on the theme of real estate, land-use, and the right to a safe home.
From the original Real Estate Show Statement of Intent:
“This is a short-term occupation of vacant city-managed property… The occupation and exposition imposes a complex human system where previously there was no system — or only the system of waste and disuse that characterizes the profit system in real estate.”
The original Real Estate Show opened on New Year’s Eve, 1979 at 123 Delancey, now part of the proposed massive Essex Crossing development. The Real Estate Show led the creation of ABC No Rio.
