Clothing Inside: Addressing American Prisons

 

Clothing Inside: Addressing American Prisons will be available to view September 1st - October 1st, 2022 at the Arnold and Sheila Aronson Gallery within Parsons, the New School. The exhibit, co-developed by NPW member Jonathan Alvarez of 914 United, centralizes the human experience behind bars by expressing the material conditions of incarceration. It serves as a critique to the ways that fashion functions as an oppressive force within carceral landscapes, while also highlighting fashion's unique and ongoing impressive engagement with work that opposes carceral regimes.
