NO PLACE TO PLAY:
a traveling exhibition by Clemson School of Architecture
Exhibit dates: July 28th – September 9, 2023
Opening reception: Friday, July 28, 5-8 pm
Location: Main gallery
Around the world, politicians and planners are displacing low-income families from their homes into dangerous landscapes on the urban fringe of cities. In these crowded and hostile spaces, how do kids hang out and socialize when there is NO PLACE TO PLAY?
This exhibit is an artistic demonstration of the influence gender has on teenagers’ access to public space in post-displacement communities. Dive into five years of cultural research with 50 teens from seven communities across India and the Philippines.
Walking through this exhibition, visitors will hear recorded conversations with teens and see maps and photographs they created to better understand how displacement affects teen socialization. Finally, join our team of Clemson University students in considering the similarities between the teens’ experiences in this study and the urban public spaces around South Carolina.
