Comfortably Numb is a critical investigation into the history and cultural impact of narcotics. Taking its title from Pink Floyd’s popular song, the exhibition examines America’s complex relationship with drugs and its representation in the media and public imagination. The artists Alberto Baraya, Hélio Oiticica and Paulo Bruscky participate in the exhibition, questioning and abandoning the usual narratives about crime and violence. Comfortably Numb focuses on how artists have reacted to the pervasive presence of drugs and their effects on social, political, economic and cultural relations throughout the Americas.
