Opening: 
Wednesday, 7 March 2018 -

Panelists: Bruce Jackson, Stephen Tourlentes, and other speakers to be announced

 This panel considers incarceration from an architectural perspective and how photographers engage with prisons as omnipresent structures in the American landscape. 

This spring, Aperture magazine will release “Prison Nation,” addressing the unique role photography plays in creating a visual record of this national crisis. Organized with the scholar Nicole R. Fleetwood, this landmark issue will be accompanied by a related exhibition from February 7 through March 7, 2018, as well as a series of six public programs—featuring speakers such as Nigel Poor, Jamel Shabazz, Deborah Luster, Bruce Jackson, Jesse Krimes, Sable Elyse Smith, Joseph Rodriguez, and more—all to take place at Aperture Foundation’s gallery.
