Assif Assefi: Prison Art

DAX Gallery

July 26 through August 23, 2014

While detained for 16 months because of drug possession charges and his blurry immigration status, Assif Assefi made art with whatever he could find: commissary bags, coffee, toothpaste, pencils. The work is murkily colored, graphic and full of recognizable figures, like members of the KKK or Ghandi.
