THE NEWARK MILK PROJECT, 2019

The Newark milk project is a temporary installation that aims to unite the community and its local law enforcement by deploring historical preservation tactics towards Newark's industrial past.

 

Racial discrimination and police brutality have been a long going concern in Newark that erupted in the Newark Riots of 1967. The place of manufacture for the Newark Milk Project is the former Borden's Milk Plant located at Nesbitt Street and Orange Street which is now the site of a "mock doomsday" for homeland security training. The Newark Milk Project examines the operations and transparencies of the Borden Company in this facility and applies them to Newark emergency services in an attempt to address established concerns and grievances with law enforcement.
