On The Inside: A Group Show Of LGBTQ Artists Who Are Currently IncarceratedNovember 5 through December 18, 2016
In a nation that incarcerates more people than any other country in the world, LGBTQ prisoners face a greater risk of physical and sexual victimization. They are more likely to experience assault and abuse by corrections officers as well as other prisoners, and less likely to have support from family and friends on the outside due to their sexuality or gender identity.
This exhibit is the culmination of a multi-year project conceived of by Tatiana von Fürstenberg in collaboration with Black and Pink.
