Living in California, chances are you live within miles of a prison. In the past two decades, close to twenty prisons have been built within the state. This group exhibition takes a broad and varied look at how the California Prison system affects us all on a social, environmental, economic, and human level. Combining information gathered from months of research and from our Prison Project Community Advisory Network, this exhibition features new work from a number of Bay Area artists in sculpture, video, photography, graphic design, and installation, and work from the inside. This exhibit will feature the work of Arthur Huang & Sonia McKenna, Richard Kamler, Mabel Negrete, William Noguera, Plain Human, Robert Stansbury, Sara Thustra, Kelly Beile & Emily Wright, The Advocates for Indigenous California Language Survival, The AOUON Archive, Mutual Aid Pen Pal Project, The Imagine Bus Project, San Francisco Art Institute City Studio and more. This exhibition runs concurrently with the exhibition Criminal: Art and Criminal Justice in America at the Fine Arts Gallery at San Francisco State University.
