Although there are positive aspects of the current push for urban development and densification of city centers, the questions of who benefits from that development and who does it negatively affect arises. Public spaces become less public with the inclusion of well-designed but also well hidden "defensive architecture," dictating who can and cannot use the space. Walkability, which is defined by the final destination and not by the act of leisurely wandering the city, is touted as the ultimate goal, but walkability to where and why? To work, to shopping centers, or to public parks? Does use become prescribed in these new spaces? If so, how we react to these restrictions? This exhibit will run June 29-Dec. 29, 2018. An opening reception will be held June 29, 6-9 p.m. Visit www.utahmoca.org/portfolio/working-hard-to-be-useless for information.
