Underground journalist, musician, and independent curator Erick Lyle is visiting Portland to lead a conversation about his newest book, Streetopia. The book is based on the eponymous Streetopia exhibition, a massive anti-gentrification art fair co-curated by Lyle, Chris Johanson, and Kal Spelletich in San Francisco in 2012. The new book gathers together the art from the show and considers the effectiveness of the show’s projects while placing it in the context of rampant global displacement and urbanization and the changing nature of urban public space in our neoliberal era.

The show brought together 100+ artists/writers/activist with residents of the Tenderloin to consider utopian aspiration for the city and to organize resistance to official city plans to redevelop the Tenderloin into a “Dot Com corridor.” Streetopia featured public performances in the streets and community gardens, new murals in the streets, and several galleries of work, including free daily talks/meetings/skill shares and a Free Cafe, run by SRO hotel residents, that served two free meals a day for the entire five-week run of the show.

Erick Lyle is the co-founder of Miami’s first Food Not Bombs chapter, and worked for many years as a street outreach organizer with San Francisco’s Coalition on Homelessness. He has been publishing the influential art/activism/crime/punk magazine, SCAM, since 1991. His writing has appeared on NPR’s This American Life, Art in America, LA Weekly, Raritan, California Sunday, Vice, Brooklyn Rail, and The SF Bay Guardian, where he was a frequent writer on books and art for ten years.

We’ll be joined by a panel of local arts groups, like Living Stages, CityRepair, and APANO, to learn more about anti-displacement arts initiatives in Portland.
