WE WON'T MOVE! The story of the International Hotel on Kearny Street, is a heartbreaking reality for the fight for housing rights and gentrification in the Bay Area, and a reminder of the sacrifices our elders made for our rights. These earrings depict two scenes: The daytime, where the tenants of the I-hotel (mostly elderly Filipino and Chinese men) sit outside of the I-hotel, and the night time when the riots of the I-hotel began, and its elderly tenants were eventually pushed out. This piece was designed in collaboration with UK artist Tayler Pineda (@byTPPJ) and Anne Fard (@shakerszstories) to tell the history behind the piece.
