With a title loosely based on the New York City mayor’s well-known campaign phrase, In Search of One City recognizes that artists have long been offering creative interpretations of and solutions for a timely issue now at the forefront of local and national policy debates. In Search of One City: Sensing (In)equality includes both artists who expose and critique the systems that perpetuate income inequality, and artists and arts groups engaging with underrepresented communities towards developing new models and services for a more equitable city.
