HOI_FullHouse colorA group exhibition that deals with the issue of imprisonment. Artworks by incarcerated artists who express their experience from inside the prison walls and by non-incarcerated artists who tackle the American criminal justice system from outside its walls are on display. The works provide a multiplicity of perspectives on the prison experience, a phenomenon that is both intimidating and unfamiliar to the general public.

Artists include Alyse Emdur, Anthony Friedkin, Los Angeles Poverty Department, Robert V. Montenegro, Jack L. Morris, Brendan Murdock, Sheila Pinkel, Gabriel Ramirez, Gabriel Reyes, Richard Ross, Robert Stockton, Mark Strandquist, Margaret Stratton, and David Earl Williams.
