I Build My Own City. (Artist: Christine Doherty) - 18x24 Poster


Designed by Christine Doherty for the 2019 Artwork for Equity Advocacy Campaign.

I Build My Own City was inspired from 2 cities facing similar challenges--St. Louis and Baltimore--when designing equitable infrastructural systems and an agonistic political dialogue. The collages are meant to incite a productive conversation between a city and its people, and to encourage a re-interpretation of spatial justice.
