Apotheosis of One Humankind Exhibition by Gustavo Diaz Sosa
@ Anacostia Arts Center, 1231 Good Hope Rd. SE
Apotheosis of One Humankind presents 13 new works by Cuban-born artist Gustavo Diaz Sosa. These paintings convey his perception of The State, The Power, and anything that invovles human submission. More than serve as a social or explicit protest manifesto, Diaz Sosa's paintings are an existential projection of our looming future in light of modern history.
