Southie Then and Now - A Neighborhood Transformed

Presented by Boston Public Library at Boston Public Library: East Boston Branch, Boston MA

Aug 02 - 31 2022
Southie Then and Now - A Neighborhood Transformed

This exhibition reveals South Boston’s transformation, from a mostly low-to-moderate income community with industrial areas, to today’s gentrification with luxury condos and a radically shifted neighborhood identity.

In this interactive exhibition from Jared Katsiane, a split screen video features clips from eight Hollywood films shot in South Boston from 1968 to 2015 and video footage from 2021. The 2021 clips replicate each shot from the Hollywood films, highlighting the contrast between the past and present Southie landscape.

The exhibition includes a paper map of South Boston, with locations depicted in the films, and listings of housing organizations and other community resources. Viewers can use color
