People’s Homes, pt. III

The People’s Homes series draws upon the vernacular of symbols and objects found in front yards, on porches, and in neighborhoods to make powerful statements about home, family, and gentrification. The third iteration in the People’s Homes series is focused on intergenerational belonging, caregiving, and caretaking in San Antonio, Texas. In this project, the traditional use of a residential flag is reframed to represent an intergenerational relationship and demonstrate something personally meaningful in these connections. We invited representatives from six local cultural organizations to select and interview an intergenerational pair. Their stories, along with participant portraits and interviews, are printed in a newsprint publication. The project is on view as an exhibition at the Contemporary at Blue Star before being installed in the community.
