AIR Project

YI Artists worked with artist in residence LaToya Ruby Frazier to create photographs that documented their changing neighborhoods, selves, and a variety of public spaces in New York City. They examined the effects of advertising on society and the ways that individuals make every day choices. Teens also watched and discussed excerpts from the documentaries Century of the Self and the British series 7 UP to further understand the links between propaganda, advertising, and the ways in which social class affect an individual’s future. 

Christine’s Artist Statement

The media has shaped the way I perceive race, class, and gender by using simple things like advertisements, commercials, and new technology. These tactics are designed to make me believe stereotypes about people’s ethnicity, about peoples’ gender—for instance, how a woman should act or how a man should be masculine—and even about how much money people make.
