Its a shocking fact: One in 33 adults in Arizona are under some form of correctional control either in jail or prison; on parole or probation. A quarter-century ago, this number was one in 79.
What happened? In Its Not Just Black and White, his new three-month-long residency exhibition at ASU, Phoenix artist Gregory Sale attempts to unravel the complicated narrative of justice and public safety. With installations, discussions, and programs that include a tour of Tent City, Sale will address the how and why of incarceration and our attitudes about it.
The project part of ASU Art Museums Social Studies series of residency exhibitions demands dialogue about modern criminal justice in a process-oriented context that allows visitors to witness the artists process while hes creating.
