This event has ended.

Amos Eno Gallery presents Peace Among Savages, a group exhibition of work about guns and gun violence. at the gallery’s new location at 56 Bogart Street in Brooklyn, NY. The gallery will be open late until 9 PM on Friday, July 15 as part of the building-wide “Bushwick Hot Summer Nights” art event.

“Part of this exhibition is exposure therapy,” says exhibition curator Mary Gagler, “In a typical group show, the piece about guns usually shocks and repels. This exhibition takes guns as the starting point to see what we can uncover about our relationship to a weapon as ubiquitous as it is taboo.”

Based on a national call for artists, Peace Among Savages features painting, photography, sculpture, weaving, printed matter and game design by John Adkins, John H Clarke, Miguel Cortinas, Emma Covode, Brooks Dierdorff, Nancy Elsamanoudi, Jonathan Frey, Ingrid Goldbloom Bloch, Velvet G.Oldmine, Goomba, Kathleen Greco, Craig Hill, Katherine Jackson, Matthew Keff, Jason Laning, MadMFia, Rosemary Meza-DesPlas, Rojava Solidarity NYC, Stass Shpanin, Abigail Smithson, Robin Snyder, Ryan Steed, Betsy Stout, Kento Saisho and Taehee Whang, Bubblegum Whiskey, Courtney White, Scot J.
