Art Exhibition: Disruption! Art and the Prison Industrial Complex

Curated by Annie Buckley

Artists: Karla Diaz, Stan Hunter, Peter Merts, Javier Quintero, Tony Ramirez, Paul Rucker, Gregory Sale, Noelle Swan, Robert Yovanov

The tragic facts of the history of incarceration in America are widely recognized. That we imprison more people than anywhere else on the planet, for longer sentences, and in harsh conditions, is seen as a pressing problem across political aisles.

Where does art fit into all of this? How can the arts disrupt cycles of trauma and promote healing and connection, inspire education and social change? Within the strict confines and jagged social structure of the American prison system, art plays a particularly poignant and pressing role. It is often the only outlet an individual stripped of rights has to give voice to thoughts and ideas, memories and dreams. For contemporary artists beyond the walls, art can be a means to critique, dialogue, and imagine solutions to the intractable problems of the prison industrial complex.

Disruption! Art and the Prison Industrial Complex, brings together artists directly impacted by the prison system with artists that address it in their work.

Art Exhibition: Ashley Hunt: Degrees of Visibility

Ashley Hunt’s Degrees of Visibility is a large body of landscape photographs made in locations throughout all fifty US states and its territories, that documents the spaces in which prisons are embedded. Observed from publicly accessible points of view, Hunt’s photographs look at how prisons are presented and camouflaged within our everyday perception and how they contribute to an aesthetic of mass incarceration.
