Presented by: Zenith Gallery
Venue: H-Space
Official website

Curated by Elizabeth Ashe, Play, Protection, or Peril is an exhibition of 2-D, sculpture, performance art, and public programming which explores guns as a source of so many perspectives. A gun is not deemed necessary to function, i.e., like a cell phone, shoes, or warm winter jacket, yet the right to own one is written into our Constitution. Our public programming is based on building relationships with legislative and community nonprofits who address gun violence. Are guns the norm? We accept gun toys, we absorb losses in our community, and we want to feel safe. We need to challenge our acceptance of the norm. What we need here, in our nation's capital, is art to cross the divide and inspire discussions between the naivety of childhood games, those who need guns to feel safe, those they impact, and those who fear that guns are destroying the fabric of our society.
