This may well be one of the most significant art exhibits of its kind - certainly of the early 21st century. There are a small handful of established exhibitions designed to showcase the current state of the arts, such as the Venice Biennale; however, what's amazing about this exhibit is that it's not organized by a major institution (along with the inherent politics), but rather by a group of artists who truly are in life's trenches - where the "real world" interfaces with artistic expression.
