A New Kind of Community. A project by Farrah Miranda, Commissioned by Lakeshore Arts
A collection of poems by Farrah Miranda, A New Kind of Community navigates the anger, loss, absurdity and greed at the heart of a widespread housing crisis; along with the complexities and contradictions of art-making in an increasingly unliveable city. Miranda describes the project saying, “It is no secret that as public art goes up, so do home prices. Ballooning rents and mortgages are creating new breaking points all around. I struggle with what it means to create art in this context - these poems reflect that''. Miranda is a multidisciplinary artist. This is her first collection of poetry.
Presented by Lakeshore Arts.
