#manifestjustice Favorite

Los Angeles

In the wake of the amount of police brutality that has been occurring since the dawn of the damn police, an institution that began as a way to find escaped slaves, across the United States, #manisfestjustice chooses to make its explicit artistic mission to demand that power take responsibility, and to provide avenues to community empowerment in the meantime.

As a collective of artists, #manifestjustice is the exhibition for the organization to say what it has to say in their voices without a filter. Stark images are the defining feature of #manifestjustice's work; an empty hoodie and jeans with a halo around its head, neon lights spelling out "justice" with "us" sprayed over the "ice" to read " just us". Their exhibitions tend to be in communities affected by crime, gang violence, and police brutality and they cover a range of topics that don't have to deal with violence, like LGBT rights. Their most recent work appeared in a community exhibition in Baldwin Village in Los Angeles.
