BREAK GLASS: THE ART OF VL COX

Posted on November 2nd, 2017 by staff

The End Hate Project is a narrative body of work that looks at the nation’s history of past and present discrimination, gender issues, and social culture. These artworks by VL Cox convey messages that are aggressive, violent, disturbing, irreverent, and even humorous, as they depict a society where we’ve been before and where we can’t allow ourselves to go again.
