'Exit Wounds' Exhibition Tells Stories Of Violence And Hope In Los Angeles
This collaborative project between ex-gang members and LA artist Nancy Baker Cahill is visually haunting. Participants in the project tell their stories through their own photographs, original art, text and other objects. Once the works were created they were then shot at with a .45 caliber handgun by Baker Cahill. Using mixed media, these personal narratives revolve around violence, loss and the hope for a future.
