Shattered Mural

 September 6, 2017 – February 25, 2018

Shattered Mural is a floor installation of forty-three sculptural fragments that reference the abduction and murder of the 43 college students in 2014 in the southern Mexican state of Guerrero.  This tragic event became an international symbol for victims of institutional corruption and repressive regimes around the world.

The individual fragments of Shattered Mural were created by deconstructing a mural (painted with acrylic paint on wood) into forty-three shards that when put back together would contribute to the whole.

The installation is on view with Hugo Crosthwaite’s In Memoriam: Los Angeles, co-presented with the California Historical Society. Shattered Mural is on loan from Luis De Jesus Los Angeles.
