G.E.E.E. at Theaster Gates’ Dorchester Projects

Over the course of this two-year resdiency, Cream Co. activated several spaces with G.E.E.E. trading posts, installations and events; including an indoor trading post, a mobile pop-up trading post, gardening workshops, a community heirloom tomato garden, a scent-sampler garden, and curated plant and petal installations.

Mobile multi-purpose exchange station at the first Black Cinema House (Theaster’s living room).

Dried oranges and dried pomegranates hanging around, waiting to be traded.

A few signs transformed a stairwell and foyer in the Archive House into a trading post for succulents and items exchanged by neighbors.

Items are always available for sale (at cost) or trade. All profits go back to the community that hosts Cream Co.
