All We Got
November 9 - December 7
“We All We Got” explores the consequences and devastation of youth violence in contemporary America from 2006 – 2013 through a mix of powerful photographs, incisive essays and moving letters from diverse individuals affected by this perennial scourge.
Carlos Javier Ortiz’s work provides an avenue for knowing these children and their families. This work is not the end of the conversation about youth violence and society’s complicity in it, but rather the beginning. The terror in the eyes of grieving children and inconsolable mothers only allows the viewer to begin to understand the toll that this reality takes on the children who live it.
Carlos Javier will discuss his work and screen two short films, “We All We Got” and “A Thousand Midnights”, during the artist talk on November 9, 12:30 p.m. at Delta’s North Forum. Join Carlos Javier for the Gallery Reception on Thursday, November 9th, from 5:00 to 7:00 P.M.
