Artspace presents a two-day interdisciplinary conference designed to promote discussion on the interplay between race, artistic expression, mass incarceration, and varying perspectives on justice.
Guest artists, policy makers, scholars, and activists will address urgent questions raised by the affiliated exhibition, of the same name, and Artspace's 15th Annual Summer Apprenticeship Program, on display in the galleries at Artspace from July 17 - September 13, 2015. The discussions will explore the direct and collateral consequences of mass incarceration on the community and the individual, the criminal stereotype, color-blindness as a cultural principle, and the role that artistic expression can play in addressing these issues.
The Conference is co-sponsored by Yale University Art Gallery, and will take place in the museum’s auditorium at 1111 Chapel St, New Haven, CT. The conference and exhibitions are free and open to the public.
