How do you communicate 50,000 deaths?
A Nation of Fear was a group exhibition confronting issues surrounding the climate of violence in Mexico. Each artist addressed the violence, as well as its causes and the widespread social and political consequences both in Mexico and the United States.
More than 50,000 people have died as a direct result of the Mexican drug war over the last few years, and thousands more have been affected by the violence in the border town Juarez. The purpose of this exhibition was to engage the larger public into a vey difficult conversation.
Nominated for Best Group Gallery Show by the Austin Critic's Table Awards.
