Mobility is about more than how you get around the city.
SPOKE “use[s] art and design to explore the social themes, specifically the relationships between people, transportation and urban spaces,” wrote Katie Bohri, the organization’s events and outreach manager, in an email. “We thought this pop-up gallery would be a way to open the floor to more voices and perspectives.”
What exactly does mobility mean here?
“We define mobility as, first, any means of physically getting around (feet, wheels, pedals, mass transit),” Bohri said. “Second, we keep in mind the element of social and economic mobility. We want to understand and bring to light where race, class, wealth and gender intersect with a person’s ability to move freely in our city and world.”
SPOKE is looking to feature designers, architects and other creators as well as artists in the show. Submit a brief description of your 2D artwork to Elliott Lamborn at firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered. Deadline is Oct. 25.
