No Justice, No Peace

By Oree Originol

Sunday, November 2, 2014 - Wednesday, March 11, 2015

No Justice, No Peace, created by artist Oree Origianol, was inspired by his latest body of work: Justice For Our Lives (JFOL). JFOL is a series of portraits of individuals from marginalized communities who have lost their lives due to state violence or hate crimes.  This digital mural represents a central component of our Day of the Dead event, Creating Sacred Space, in which we honor those who have succumbed to injustice.

Artist Statement:

These images call attention to the ongoing issue of police terrorism and also the culture of violence brought on by the ideals of white supremacy in our society. In recent years we have witnessed an onslaught of police killings of black and brown people; in most cases justice is rarely served. We also deal with violence within our own communities resulting from the fear and lack of understanding of the difference within us, such as race, gender, age, economic status and disability. This project encourages us to engage in conversation with each other to recognize the common ground between our struggles and about how we collectively respond to injustice on a cultural and political level.
