Currently is a participatory exhibition organized by artist Mark Menjívar that looks deeply at capital punishment in the United States. Through maps, signs, collaborative timelines, a reading table and spaces for imagination, visitors are invited to reflect on the complicated nature of state-sanctioned violence. Visitors will be invited to participate in ongoing collective research and leave reflections directly on the gallery walls, which will then become a publication at the close of the exhibition.
