44-Artist Show Opens at MoMA PS1 on Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration

September 25, 2020 In the Press

Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration, an exhibition that investigates the work of artists within US prisons, has opened at MOMA PS1. 

Reviewing the exhibition for the New York Times, Holland Cotter writes, 

The exhibition complicates the definition of crime itself, expanding it beyond the courtroom into American society. It’s a society in which racism often determines presumption of guilt; in which imprisonment — human disempowerment and erasure — is chosen over righting the inequities that lead to prison.

Marking Time is organized by guest curator Dr. Nicole R. Fleetwood and follows the release of Fleetwood’s new book, Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration. Justice-in-Education Scholar Lisette Oblitas's artwork was featured in the book as well.
