Anné Klint has served as Artist-In-Residence at the Grand Theatre Center for the Arts since October of 2012. Traveling throughout Tracy, she invited residents, business owners, and community leaders to participate in a media-based project exploring the stories and impact of the ongoing economic depression and housing crisis in our community. Dozens of individuals, organizations, and businesses joined Anné as creative partners. The culmination of her work is a documentary and exhibition that captures a multitude of personal recollections presented through the visionary tools of an artist. This project provides intimate reference points exploring what we’ve been through, and where we might be going as a community, as well as how these historic events continue to impact our quality of life.
Anné Klint states,
"As the Inhabit Your City: Voices of Tracy project closes and we approach opening day, I reflect upon the process with much gratitude. The scope of the project is immense, and I can’t help but feel like I have left much work undone. But glancing over the images and revisiting the interviews, I remember the many who have contributed to this documentary storytelling project, whose stories make up the larger story of what has happened throughout communities like Tracy since the recent housing market crash. I’m excited for the opening on June 8th, where we will debut the short documentary HOME on the big screen at the Grand followed by a celebratory opening of the related exhibition Fire Sale (Everything Must Go) in the Galleries."
This project is made possible in part by a grant from The Creative Work Fund, a program of the Walter and Elise Haas Fund supported by the generous grants from ArtPlace, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and The James Irvine Foundation. The Grand Theatre Center for the Arts is the first organization in San Joaquin County to receive this prestigious recognition from The Creative Work Fund/ArtPlace.
