Peace Among Savages

Group Show about Guns

July 2 - July 23, 2016


Amos Eno Gallery is pleased to present Peace Among Savages, an exhibition ​of work that explores guns and gun violence by members of the arts community. An opening reception will be held on Friday, July 8, 7- 9 PM at the gallery’s new location at 56 Bogart Street in Brooklyn, NY. The gallery will have late hours until 9 PM on Friday, July 15  as part of the building-wide "Bushwick Hot Summer Nights".


Guns are accepted as a method of keeping "Peace" while at the same time widely acknowledged as instruments of chaos when used outside of state control. And yet, access to guns in other cultures is a sign of autonomy and resistance to oppression. Art may be the best way to explore this multivalence, hence, "The Gun Show".

This exhibition was curated by Mary Gagler through an open call to artists. By exhibiting at least one work by each artist who submitted to the show, Amos Eno Gallery offers a platform for free speech in a community venue through art on the controversial subject of guns.
