Brooklyn —

Artist Dread Scott’s latest exhibition tackles politically charged topics, including Hurricane Katrina and the war in Iraq, with such frank images as a black baby doll, face down in a tank of water, and five shallow graves.

But he’s drawn the most fire for his depiction of police brutality in the form of shooting-range silhouettes abutting motorized police batons striking a coffin.

The piece, titled, “The Blue Wall of Violence,” is featured his “Welcome to America” exhibition at The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts.
