The exhibition includes a selection of eighteen major canvases created between 2002-2016. Works on view cover topics ranging from the violence in Benghazi, Syria, and across the Middle East to disasters closer to home such as Hurricane Katrina, the BP Oil Spill, and the 9/11 World Trade Tower attacks.

El poderoso trabajo de Luis Cruz Azaceta fusiona la abstracción geométrica con un neo-expresionismo socialmente consciente para explorar la violencia y la injusticia que ocurre en nuestros tiempos.
