"Inside Job" provides a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse.
Art for Change is pleased to present "Scary Movie Night: Corporate Monsters" in conjunction with its current exhibition, "Faces of the Economy," which deconstructs our economic structures to explore current pressures such as outsourcing of jobs overseas, lack of an adequate living wage against rising housing costs, and low job security, featuring artists Kiran Chandra, Elvira Clayton, Michael D’Antuono, Alexis Duque, Alejandro Guzman, Kathleena Howie-Garcia, Ijeoma D. Iheanacho, Ellen Coleman Izzo, Marilyn A. Johnson, Jamie Kelty, Angela Mark, Dato Mio, Danielle Poletto, Michael Pribich, Ashok Sinha, Juana Valdes, and Sarah Young. Also on view next door at Café Saint Germain: Andrzej Maciejewski and Elisabet Diaz
