Title: Rhetorical Displacements
Artist: David White, UCSD Visual Art Department MFA Alum
5:30 - 6:30 pm. Film. "Rhetorical Displacements" is a video essay based on a talk given by artist David White called "Tactical Displacements: Makers, Places and the Aesthetics of Soft Colonies" that, in addition to offering a critique of contemporary urban trends such as "tactical urbanism," innovation districts, maker and craft cultures and creative economies, intercuts the content of this talk with three recent promotional videos of developments happening in San Diego that use this rhetoric in marketing said projects. These urban development projects are located in the neighborhoods of East Village and Barrio Logan, a formerly industrial area and a traditionally Mexican neighborhood respectively. The rhetoric of these promotional videos are, in turn intercut with the stories of one resident of East Village and one (former) resident of Barrio Logan whose lives have been affected or displaced by recent and future developments; and whose narratives contradict those promulgated by the aforementioned development interests.
