Dislocations: artists respond to Mass Incarceration

Opening Reception: Friday, May 25, 5-8pm

Collard Greens: Dinner + Dialogue: Thursday, June 7, 6-9pm

We live in a country that practices mass incarceration, yet the detention spaces and their communities often are invisible. Our ideas and stories about prisons, jails and correctional facilities frequently belong to a remote world of over-sensationalized flash news and fictions. This multimedia exhibition and series of events at Collar Works will explore carceral systems through creative initiatives and more direct conversations, showcasing artists’ work that are created in collaboration with and by the incarcerated. We wish to generate conversations about the current criminal justice system and its impact on our community through a collection of ways out, ways in, and in-betweens.

Exhibiting artists: Alison Cornyn, Patrick Kiley, Evelyne Leblanc-Roberge, Melissa Sarris, and Beth Thielen

Organized by Evelyne Leblanc-Roberge and Melissa Sarris, with support from Publication Studio Hudson.
