GALERIE EASTERN BLOC
7240 CLARK AVE, MONTREAL
27 MAI – 16 JUIN, 2011
Sensitive and full of humanity, the audiovisual artworks presented at the AGIR / ART OF WOMEN IN PRISON exhibition are the result of a collaboration process between 49 incarcerated women whose participation was sought on account of their singular life experiences, and 8 professional artists who were invited into the carceral facilities. Their collective work explores the link between incarceration and poverty – economical, social, family-based, cultural or emotional. Presented by the Société Elizabeth Fry du Québec and Engrenage Noir / LEVIER, this exhibition reveals the individual struggles of women in conflict with the law and acknowledges them in an artistic context – beyond a crime, a prison sentence or a set of stereotypes.
