Detention Nation

Exhibition Website

Feb 11 2016 - May 27 2016

“The Collective Sin Huellas has taken custody of this museum and has entrapped you, the viewer. You will be forced to experience conditions thousands of detainees endure everyday. Chain link fences, razor wires, and cameras alert your instincts of your captivity. The installations challenge viewers to contemplate the consequences of broken immigration policies, and to experience the subhuman conditions that prevail in detention facilities across the country and the world. Detention Nation is a call-to-action in solidarity of all unjustly incarcerated! ~ Maruca Salazar, Curator

Sin Huellas Collective Artists: Carlos Carrasco, Selene Cortez, Brenda Cruz Wolf, Orlando Lara, Delilah Montoya, Douglas Menjivar, Hope Stanford and Deyadira Trevino
