Join curator of the exhibition Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women of Louisiana Monica Ramirez-Montagut for a virtual gallery tour.

Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women of Louisiana explores the root causes of mass incarceration in the US through art inspired by the interviews of thirty formerly incarcerated women of Louisiana—the state known as the “Prison Capital of the World.” Co-curated in partnership with formerly incarcerated women, Per(Sister) seeks to build awareness of the crucial issues that impact women before, during, and after incarceration. The exhibition shares stories of loss, hope, despair, survival, triumph, and persistence in a variety of forms, demonstrating simultaneously the universal struggles faced by communities impacted by incarceration and the personal resilience of each woman featured.

Per(Sister) is a traveling exhibition produced by the Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.
