Cesar Conde Exhibiting in American Roulette
Epiphany Center for the Arts
201 S. Ashland Ave.
Thru July 18
Violence and disregard for life have become so ingrained in American society and culture (from police brutality and institutional abuse, to poverty and domestic violence) that our collective consciousness is now shaped by paranoia and fear. The media we choose to consume numbs us and the suffering endured by others becomes nothing more than flickering images on a screen, slowly turning our desensitizations to apathy and fascination.
The American Roulette exhibit presents provocative artwork influenced by gun culture and violence. The mission of this exhibit is to evoke a needed platform for productive dialog across cultural and societal divides in order to listen and learn from each other.
