Macabre exhibit pictures kids in violent scenarios

Britt from the Chron tackles AES+F at the Station, and he doesn't pull punches; here he describes the work Suspects

"The installation surrounds you with the photographs of all 14 girls and challenges you to try and figure out which ones are the murderers. Of course, it's impossible to tell, and the artists are withholding the girls' identities.

Seeing a piece like this in Texas, with our brisk pace of executions and overturned death-penalty convictions, is particularly unnerving after you realize you have a 50-50 chance of being wrong about who the killers around you are."

Well, I can't say I miss Patricia Johnson's press release thievin' formalism/pandering- thanks Chronicle!

ps- this sentence is too silly; "Remnants of the cultural residue of all nations and times pervade the new epoch."
