From October 2022-March 2023, a site-specific adaptation of Proposal for a 28th Amendment? Is it Possible to Amend an Unequal System? (collaboration with Tali Keren) was on view at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, California. The exhibition materials shifted to reflect the dominant languages in the Bay Area. New videos include Stanford Law Professor Elizabeth Hidalgo Reese on Tribal Law and Native erasure in the U.S. Constitution; UC Berkeley Law Professor Khiara M. Bridges on reproductive justice and originalism; and Public Advocates lawyer Suzanne Dershowitz on systemic housing inequities and the growing effort to amend the California Constitution to add a right to housing. The installation was activated through public programs with Khiara M. Bridges, ACCE Legal Advocate Leah Simon-Weisberg, Moms 4 Housing, and Youth Speaks. 

Proposal for a 28th Amendment? Is it Possible to Amend an Unequal System?, collaboration with Tali Keren, 2021-ongoing (San Francisco iteration 2022-2023), participatory installation made of sonic soapbox sculptures with MP3 players and headphones that emit evolving oral archive, recording station, eight 4K videos and four 60x120” canvas banners, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, CA


Voices from the Past | Voices from the Present is a workshop with UC Berkeley Professor of Law Khiara M. Bridges on the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Professor Brigdges explored the role of originalism in the Court’s decision, and discussed how originalism privileges the voices of the few who held power centuries ago, while silencing people who live today.

Activation of the sonic soapboxes with Youth Speaks, where teen writers from the Bay Area responded to the project’s questions through their poetry. 

If Housing was a Human Right in U.S. Law focused on systemic housing inequities, the push to add a right to housing to the California state Constitution, and the critical role of grassroots community action. These subjects were unpacked by Leah Simon-Weisberg, the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) Legal Director, and Dominique Walker, a founding member of Moms 4 Housing, who will also discuss M4H’s occupation of a home in Oakland. Participants were invited to reflect on the discussion by adding their voices to the installation’s oral archive.
