Manifest Justice brings together artists inspired by questions of social justice. Featured are more than 220 works by an estimated 150 artists from all over the United States and beyond. Submissions came from conceptual artists, painters, poster artists, sculptors, graphic designers and performers. The organizer is Yosi Sergant, an American publicist known for his commissioning and management of the “Hope” poster created during the 2008 presidential election by Shepard Fairey.
Manifest Justice is a combination art exhibit and pop-up space, and is located in the old Baldwin Theater in Baldwin Hills/Los Angeles, CA (part of a defunct local chain of African American-owned cinemas). Manifest Justice explores questions of power and inequity.
Featured are vintage political placards, civil rights photography and dozens of works by contemporary artists — such as a gutted police car from Ferguson, which, on Wednesday afternoon, was being transformed into a garden of sorts at the “Manifest Justice” space by Des Moines artist Jordan J. Weber.
