What Rhymes with Freedom?: Visions of Decarceration

SPACE is pleased to present the exhibition What Rhymes with Freedom?: Visions of Decarceration, highlighting work that explores alternative futurisms, liberatory archives, and artist activism as part of a deliberate world-building against police states, incarceration, immigrant detention centers, and global political prisoners. This project, running from Sep 10, 2021 – Oct 31, 2021 in SPACE’s
534 Congress Street Gallery, will feature the curatorial and collective platforms Border Patrol, Radical Archive, Colectivo los Ingrávidos, and a constellation of independent artists.

This multi-media library and reading room is part of Freedom & Captivity, highlighting art, design, sights, sounds, and correspondence dreaming of abolition, liberation, and peace.

A full list of participating artists and more information is forthcoming. Affiliated programs will include a book launch on October First Friday with Border Patrol, and a panel discussion; SPACE is commissioning a micro-site of films, Ancestralidad y Trance of the works of Colectivo los Ingrávidos in conversation with other filmmakers, organized by Curatorial Fellow Almudena Escobar López, this project will launch independently but parallel to this exhibition.

What Rhymes with Freedom? is an independently organized exhibition that is part of the Freedom & Captivity coalition.
