Please join the 39th Street Gallery for an artist talk with Elizabeth Burden on her exhibition Cartographies: Indictments and Impunities.

Elizabeth will be responding directly to the work in the exhibition and invites you to participate with questions and dialogue.

About the exhibition:
Over the past several years, countless black and brown individuals have been killed by police. It is countless because no nationwide statistics are kept. In that same period, a few hundred police officers have been killed in the line of duty.

The works in this exhibition are one artist’s reflection on the conundrums connected to the extrajudicial killings by police and to police officers’ deaths in the line of duty. They are abstractions, creative representations that map the spaces and places where individuals have lost their lives, families have mourned, and communities have questioned.

39th Street Gallery is located at 3901 Rhode Island Ave., Brentwood, MD.
