Working with the Bronx Museum Teen Council, Laura Napier’s project for a street corner (Yankees), documents a physical and symbolic confrontation between participating teens and baseball fans immediately before a game in an intersection near Yankee Stadium. Responding to the animosity that some locals feel regarding the infiltration of tourists during baseball season, the performative action both reclaims the streets of the neighborhood and suggests the preservation of locality.
