A Place for Justice brings together work by nine artists, including two collaborative teams, who utilize diverse mapping strategies to examine a variety of geocultural concerns. Their work addresses the intersection of natural and manmade environments, the consequences of climate change, the disparity between homelessness and wealth, patterns of sexual violence against women, immigration and border politics, the history of territorial conquest, and relationships between individuals and between identity and place. Through photographs, sculptures, videos, and works on paper, the exhibition seeks to raise awareness of the mistreatment of marginalized populations. The intent is to inspire action against injustice and to effect positive change within a shared societal landscape.

The artists (including birthplace | current residence) are Kim Abeles (Richmond Heights, Missouri | Los Angeles), SDSU alumna Tanya Aguiñiga (Tijuana | Los Angeles), Jackie Amézquita (Quetzaltenango, Guatemala | Los Angeles), Suzanne Lacy (Wasco, California | Los Angeles), Jana Sophia Nolle (Germany | Berlin and San Francisco), SDSU alumnus Omar Pimienta (Tijuana | San Diego and Tijuana), Marcos Ramírez ERRE (Tijuana | San Diego and Tijuana), Nikki Rosato (New York, New York | Washington, D.C.), and David Taylor (Massachusetts | Arizona).
