“Being Sentenced to prison you experience being labeled as not fit for belonging to society… Art is all about dreaming and creating and doing things that are counter to that and go up against all that…”
-Nicole Fleetwood in the special video guided tour of the exhibition Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration, commenting on the work of the artist Ronnie Goodman. Ronnie died homeless on the streets of San Francisco in August 2020.

Open at MoMA PS1 through April 4, Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration shows the powerful and inspiring art created by 44 men and women in the hellish conditions of the U.S. prison system — holding more than 2 million people, more than any other country in history, in the "land of the free."

Dr. Nicole Fleetwood, noted art scholar and Professor of American Studies and Art History at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, curated this unique exhibition. Her book documenting this art work was selected by The New York Times as one of the best art books of 2020.
