Can art frame the city so that we understand and acknowledge the forces that shape it? Catherine Gudis, associate professor of history at University of California, Riverside, considers this through the artists’ group Los Angeles Poverty Department (LAPD). Comprised of Skid Row residents, LAPD directs attention to the invisible forces of urban design: poverty and gentrification, people and movement, police action and inaction, and spaces and buildings once shaped by architects and owners but whose larger meanings now lay elsewhere.
