    Art and the Invisible City is an exhibition exploring artistic responses to gentrification and racism in Trenton. This exhibition, featuring work by Trenton-based artists, confronts the innumerable ways that different forms of racism marginalize, hide, and exclude entire communities, making them invisible. Not yet overwritten by gentrification, Trenton—as one of Philadelphia's "sister" cities—offers a chance to rethink the kinds of artistic placeholding that can resist the overwriting of a city by unrestrained development.

    From the outside, a city like Trenton is largely hidden, illegible, and even cryptic to its neighbors. In many ways, it presents itself as a kind of crypt: sealed off, unknown, protecting those outside it from those within. But from within the city, these artworks create a record of what is invisible, what might have been forgotten, what was important, and will be again.
