Anonymous Boston

Anonymous Boston, which took place in November 2011, was a multimedia art exhibit that explored the role of media in permitting, perpetuating, or even promoting violence againt youth in working class urban communities, especially youth of color. Juxtaposing family portraits and words from loved ones against the hateful and often racist posts from anonymous commenters, and the sometimes leading and insensitive words of media outlets, it painted a heartbreaking portrait of the value of these lives lost to some in our society.
