Los Angeles Artists Reinvent Their Roles in Gentrifying Communities 4.7.2018 American Prospect
John Tapia Urquiza/sin turistas Arturo Romo and members of Northeast Los Angeles Alliance at local train station after an anti-gentrification march In March, artist Laura Owens surprised the Los Angeles art world, announcing that she would be shutting down her gallery 356 Mission in Boyle Heights on LA’s rapidly gentrifying Eastside, after more than a year of protests by local activists. Since Owens’s announcement, three more galleries have moved out.

But few Americans know what it actually means. Interviewed by Stephen Colbert on The Late Show on Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez explained: I believe that in a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no person in America should be too poor to live. What that means to me is health care as a human right, it means that every child no matter where you are born should have access to a college or trade-school education if they so choose it. I think that no person should be homeless if we have public structures or public policy to allow for people to have homes and food and lead a dignified life in the United States. The day after Ocasio-Cortez’s victory, CBS News’ Nancy Cordes asked House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi if democratic ...
