Grand Opening for the US Department of Illegal Superheros ICE DISHGalería de la Raza
2857 24th St, San Francisco, CA
Artist and activist Neil Rivas’ work asks the question, what would happen if U.S. immigration policy were applied to those most righteous of beloved pillars of American society: Superheros? As a statement on the place of undocumented immigrants in the legal maze of American domestic policy, Rivas create the U.S. Department of Illegal Superheros (ICE BLOCK), an organization that creates posters detailing various famous men and women of superhuman ability and, as it turns out, their usually ‘illegal’ origins. Krypton? Not gonna’ fly with ICE DISH.
