Curated by sheri crider and Traci Quinn, Curator of Education and Public Programs
Flight is a multi-media installation by Albuquerque-based artist sheri crider that examines incarceration from multiple perspectives. The exhibition sheds light on immigration detention – a small and often hidden corner of the prison industrial complex until recent weeks. Flight and the series of associated events combine education, visual art and fundraising to expand the practical capacity of art-making into forms of social discourse, civic engagement, and empathy building.
This project is partially sponsored by the Right of Return Fellowship, which invests in formerly incarcerated artists to create original works that can further criminal justice reform in partnership with advocates and organizers. Crider is one of the first seven recipients of the fellowship.
sheri crider is a visual artist and owner of Sanitary Tortilla Factory.
Proceeds from the fundraising workshops during this exhibition will benefit the New Mexico Immigrant Law Center
