The Milwaukee Art Museum’s 2018 San Quentin exhibition traces the evolution of contemporary artist Nigel Poor’s social practice and her collaboration with the men incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison. It is comprised of a series of visual documents made during this collaboration—mapping exercises, essays, and interviews—as well as photographs from the prison’s own archive. The grant assisted the museum with their outreach efforts to reduce barriers to participation for those impacted by incarceration.
