The exhibition title is borrowed from Angela Davis’s 2015 book and is focused on prison abolition. The work in the show centers on the perspectives of people who have been or are currently incarcerated. Each of the exhibited projects allows us to see the impact the carceral system has on individuals, offering the viewer a chance to reevaluate their perspective on the dehumanizing and harmful effects of incarceration. But each of these projects also offers solutions in the form of information, actions, ways to connect, and alternatives to incarceration.

Ultimately, through the drawings, video performances, photography, writing, and gardens, the exhibition encourages visitors to ask “What would a future without prisons look like? What would it take to get there?”

Masks are required in the galleries regardless of vaccination status.

Gallery hours:
Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, & Saturday 1-5:00 p.m.
Thursdays 1-8:00 p.m.
