‘On The Inside’—A Group Show of LGBTQ Artists Who Are Currently Incarcerated (Through Sunday, December 18)

    Date: 11/05/2016 - 12/18/2016

    Time: All Day

    Location: Abrons Art Center (466 Grand St., Manhattan)

    Price: Free

    Tuesday - Saturday, 11 am - 6 pm, Sunday 12 pm - 6 pm On the Inside is a group show consisting of 450 works by LGBTQ artists who are currently incarcerated. The exhibition marks the culmination of a multi-year project by Tatiana von Furstenberg, in collaboration with Pink and Black, a grassroots organization working to meet the needs of LGBTQ prisoners and abolish the prison industrial complex. The art featured is made from basic materials the prisoners have access to behind bars: mostly letter-sized paper, dull pencils, ball-point ink tubes, and unlikely innovations such as using an asthma inhaler with Kool-aid to create an air brushed painting. On the inside has created a way for the public to directly interact with the incarcerated artists: patrons will be able to text the artists through a transcribing service, or arrange to become their long-term pen pals.
