Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women of the United States
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women of the United States" explores the root causes of mass incarceration in the U.S. through art inspired by the interviews of 30 formerly-incarcerated women of Louisiana — the state known as the "Prison Capital of the World." Co-curated in partnership with formerly incarcerated women, "Per(Sister)" seeks to build awareness of the crucial issues that impact women before, during, and after incarceration. The exhibition shares stories of loss, hope, despair, survival, triumph, and persistence in a variety of forms, demonstrating simultaneously the universal struggles faced by communities impacted by incarceration and the personal resilience of each woman featured.

"Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women of the United States" is a traveling exhibition produced by the Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane University in New Orleans.
