What do we mean when we ask for and envision justice? Envisioning Justice shares the work of Chicago artists and communities as they visualize, actualize, and reimagine strategies, policies, and approaches in the service of a society that is just for all. Featuring artwork, ephemera, and documentation from seven Chicago communities impacted by incarceration and works by artists whose practices respond to such themes, this exhibition interrogates the failures of our criminal justice system while presenting plans toward self-empowerment and communal liberation. 

This exhibition is presented in partnership with Illinois Humanities as part of their ongoing initiative by the same name. For more information, please visit https://envisioningjustice.org/exhibition/
