An exploration of housing justice in the cultural landscape of Los Angeles, this exhibition features a video essay from multimedia artist Sarah Rara, who delivers a glimpse into the tenant-landlord relationship, anxiety, motherhood, and resilience. Explaining how the piece came to fruition, Rara writes: “Eight years ago, I began recording accounts of every interaction I had with landlords and developers, compiling a substantial multi-volume binder of photographs, notes, documents. I never intended for these notes to form the basis of an artwork, I was collecting evidence to protect myself and fellow tenants from illegal evictions. But after years of observing and documenting, I began adding poems to the binder as a way of processing, as a kind of power reversal."
