Description

In spring 2014 the Laband Art Gallery continued LMU’s focus on the theme of restorative justice with the exhibition Voices of Incarceration. Art has frequently expressed the toughest and harshest sides of human experience. This exhibition brings together works by artists/prisoners who convey their unique perspectives from inside the prison walls and those of artists who confront the American criminal justice system from outside its walls. Both groups bring to light the emotional costs and injustices of the Prison Industrial Complex. Voices of Incarceration also explores the rehabilitive arts programs in California prisons and the expression of the artists/prisoners’ strength and individuality through creative outlets.
