Join us on Friday, March 15, 7-9pm at Mason Exhibitions Arlington to witness and participate in The Innocents Punch Party with Maria Gaspar.
The Innocents provide a dramatic soundscape which endeavor to explore various aspects of the issues surrounding wrongful imprisonment and exoneration in the American criminal justice system. Enveloping the soundscape will be a commissioned sonic sculpture of decommissioned jail bars of Maria Gaspar, exploring how these artifacts transfigure what were once materials of confinement into new experiences of liberation.
Additionally Gaspar will lead a ‘punch party’ where Gaspar aims to abolish carceral spaces by incorporating prints of current Virginia carceral spaces into the Disappearance Jails project. These prints will be obscured through perforations by exhibition visitors.
