This exhibition of the internationally acclaimed Argentinian artist Adriana Bustos's artwork is an extraordinary body of work. She is a socially engaged artist who bridges the world of art and politics. The body of work in this exhibition focuses on Argentinian class issues and drug trafficking on a global scale. Her work combines politics and art in montage like narrative formats using graphite on canvas, digital photography and video to explore the global problem of drugs, the incarceration of women who are used as "human mules" to transport drugs and a class of poor workers known as cartoneros.
