Where We Live: Exploring Crime Through Art

Alix Lambert is a photographer, documentary filmmaker, writer, director, and conceptual artist who is fascinated by crime.  Her films have explored the impact of a serial killer on the Southern Louisiana community in which the killings occur, and Russian Penitentiary System through the tattoos of its inmates.

In her current exhibit at Real Art Ways in Hartford, Lambert looks at the interaction between people and the places they inhabit.

It includes a theatrical piece, Crime, USA: Hartford , that unveils a portrait of Hartford, drawn through interviews with residents about their experience with crime in their city. Damon Locks and Wayne Montana wrote lyrics for the original music inspired by the interviews.

This exhibit is at Real Art Ways through April 8.
