Following a successful run at the National Building Museum in Washington D.C., the exhibition begins its national tour at the Mobile Design Box in Milwaukee’s Near West Side. Evicted is an immersive exhibition that introduces visitors to the intimate, painful process of low-income renter eviction. Inspired by Matthew Desmond’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book about eviction in Milwaukee, the experience presents data developed by Desmond’s Eviction Lab and features original photography and audio examining reasons for and the fallout from eviction.
In conjunction with Evicted, UWM School of Architecture and Urban Planning (SARUP) will also present Finding Home – Architectural Solutions to America’s Homeless Crisis, an exploration of homelessness in America from an architectural perspective and offering creative methods for temporary solutions.
