A group exhibition of artists who have engaged with gangs in different ways. This art is the flip side of Norman Rockwell’s middle-class American paintings of Thanksgiving gatherings or getting immunized, a shot, from the doctor to protect you 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 the gang members and the victims.
