“For Fates” – Melanie Crean

A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce For Fates, an exhibition by Fellowship Artist Melanie Crean. The goal of Crean’s project is to reimagine what a future culture of justice might be like in New York City after the close of the Rikers Island Jail Complex. A range of ideas, texts, and designs was produced in workshops with groups affected by the criminal justice system. The exhibition features outcomes from these sessions, shown from the perspective of the imagined future. A selection of these visions has been realized in prototypes, and design specifications have been compiled in a publication complemented by short essays that describe how such ideas can start becoming realities
