Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration
Work from more than 35 artists is brought together in “Making Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration,” a group show at MoMA PS1 that explores the role of prisons in contemporary American culture. The featured artists include many who are currently incarcerated. The diverse range of works on view—spanning photography, collage, mixed-media sculptures, and more—reflect the realities and constraints of artmaking in prison, and imagine solutions for a future without mass incarceration.
