Documenting Crossroads: The New Normal (virtual exhibit)

The National Building Museum
Exhibition Dates: 
Jun. 16, 2020 to Dec. 31, 2020

This exhibition documents and interprets physical adaptations and behavior modifications that people in poor, segregated neighborhoods are resorting to in order to avoid being infected and to ensure economic survival during the pandemic. Our aim is to produce a visual portrait of residents as they deal with the virus on a daily basis. Density and diversity render these spots prime locations for observing a host of behaviors, from shopping habits and fashion trends to familial interactions and health practices.
