Art Engaging Gangs
Curated by Holly Crawford

Group Exhibition
June 6 - July 27, 2013
gang-coverwebi-300x300

This group exhibition showcases artists who have engaged with gangs in different ways. The art is the flip side of Norman Rockwell’s middle-class American paintings of Thanksgiving gatherings or kids receiving immunization shots from their doctor as protection from unseen danger. This is a different kind of danger: the danger of poverty, lack of work and opportunity. The work reflects and documents the violence and death that surround the lives of gang members and victims.

 

Participating Artists:
Erik Bergrin, Mark Dillon, Jasmine Johnson, Nadin Ospina, Joseph Rodriguez, Maayke Schurer, Robert Taub, Zefrey Throwell and Paula Roush’s archive of photographic collections by Rachel Johnson, Tim Body, Robbie Sweeny, Lee Slaymaker, MJ Gumayagay, Richard Harris, Christopher Kamper, Richard Johnson, Natalie Cheung, Karel Polt, Dana Mendonca, Charlotte Miceli and Rich Harley.
