Los Angeles, CA
Produced by Trap Heals directly in connection with the film Just Mercy (based on Bryan Stevenson’s book by the same name), the Proximity Greenhouse featured art of multiple mediums, music, and live performances in a greenhouse structure that was filled with flora and fauna. The activation was a part of a broader campaign strategy to shift public opinion on incarcerated individuals and was intentionally located in South LA based on the neighborhood’s history and legacy as a cultural center for Black Los Angeles and as a community impacted by mass incarceration.
