The GELA Women’s Prison Library and Reintegration Subcommittee invites you to Hidden Truths: A Multimedia Art Exhibition created by an Artist Collective of Federally Incarcerated Women in the Community Gallery at Latitude 53 Contemporary Visual Culture.
For the past seven months, local artists Matt McCoy and Anne Pasek have held art sessions with artists to assist their creative processes and provide guidance and direction. Through art, Hidden Truths explores and makes visible the processes that incarcerated women face during their time behind bars. Hidden Truths provides a visual voice for criminalized women to tell their stories, share their experiences, and make sense of how they are interpreted by people who are not criminalized.
An opening reception will be held Friday, April 13, 7:00 pm –10:00 pm, with refreshments, dialogue with volunteers involved with coordinating Hidden Truths, community members, and a cash bar will be available.
If you can’t make it to the opening, try to stop by to see the show: it will be installed at Latitude 53 Contemporary Visual Culture, 10248 – 106 Street, from April 13, 2012 to May 12, 2012.
Hidden Truths gratefully acknowledges funding from the Edmonton Arts Council (EAC) and support from Latitude 53 Contemporary Visual Culture.
