The Urbano Fellows
SECOND PUBLIC INTERVENTION
Saturday, October 1, 2016, 10AM - 1PM
Binney St & Third St | Cambridge, MA 02142
The Urbano Fellows, in collaboration with lead artist Salvador Jiménez-Flores developed an interactive, multi-purpose, movable sculpture. The style behind this sanctuary is rasquache, making do with what’s available; it invokes feelings of “home” in a natural and aesthetically uncomfortable way. Encompassing our annual theme of The Commons | The Other, we have united our unique cultural identities to create a space that is representative of our group. We have decided to challenge societal norms of identity by inviting people into this sacred space and spurring uncomfortable feelings for those who think our “ethnic” cultures are easily accessible. We have also challenged what it means to be “the other,” and we have concluded that everyone is an other and everyone has an other––that identities are intersectional, and all equally noted.
