In partnership with the Class Conscious Photographers and A Working Lens, the Oakland Asian Cultural Center will display the 2022 edition of “Housing!” featuring Bay Area photographers in our front windows.
Community Reception: in-person at OACC on Sunday, April 3, 2022 from 4-6pm Pacific
In summer 2021, the Class Conscious Photographers, an activist photographer group, held an open call for photography that reflected on our times on the broad topic of “housing.” Submissions included content featuring 1) housing of all types, especially where there is a social message, 2) people living with daily housing issues , including living in tents, RVs, on sidewalks and out of door including living in tents, RVs, on sidewalks and out of doors, 3) governmental and state responses to housing issues, and 4) protests over housing, gentrification, evictions, and housing policies. Housing! debuted as an outdoor exhibition on boards hung on fences facing the sidewalks along and near International Boulevard and 23rd Avenue in East Oakland.
OACC’s 2022 display is mostly visible from outdoors. Indoor access is possible by appointment only (email email@example.com).
