This exhibition featuring decommissioned guns, received through buyback programs, transformed into art objects and new expressions of peace, curated by Boris Bally. The exhibition has traveled the US since 2016. Radius is presenting a portion of the traveling exhibition and a Bay Area invitational curated by Ann Hazels and Angela Gleason.
I.M.A.G.I.N.E Peace Now stands for the ‘innovative merger of art and guns to inspire new expressions.’ Participating artists were challenged to create works of art that incorporate disabled firearms taken off the streets. The objects vary — some are friendly and clever, while others are more confrontational.
