Layered SPURA in 105 degrees

In the last days of our exhibition Keep Me Nearby, we held this summer’s final Layered SPURA tour, which happened to fall on the day that New York declared a heat advisory and half the city seemed to be closing down.

Yet, we turned up to the gallery to find 20 passionate people ready to brave the heat to talk about SPURA, community, displacement, solidarity, housing, and history. Many thanks to the students of ICP’s Teen Academy for participating in the walk, and to Daniel Lu, Joey Santos, Michael Ortiz, and Pasha Safronov for documenting that extraordinary day.
