Imagine Freedom: Art Works for Abolition

Critical Resistance and the Imagine Freedom: Art Works for Abolition Host Committee  are enthusiastic to invite you to engage with Imagine Freedom: Art Works for  Abolition, an online fundraising exhibition and art auction presented by  Critical Resistance + Artsy.net from September 29 – October 13, 2020.

We are excited to have confirmed participation from a myriad of  intergenerational, interdisciplinary visual artists including Domineco Villeda, Lava Thomas, Leslie “Dime” Lopez, Emory Douglas, Ferrari Sheppard,  Sadie Barnett, and Theaster Gates, to name a few. Please see full list below!

Through Imagine Freedom: Art Works for Abolition¸ Critical Resistance and  these bold artists will uplift the freedom dreams that communities have  nurtured for generations and are unapologetically demanding be recognized and  enacted in 2020.


During the current, political, and economic uprisings and throughout the  onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic, Critical Resistance has worked  tirelessly to craft information, analysis, and references for understanding  and imagining abolitionist responses to guide us toward the future we want  and need.  The success of this year’s  art auction is crucial to our work and our ability to continue to be timely  and responsive. The majority of CR’s resources continue to come from  grassroots supporters who give money, time, and skills to keep our  organization stable and ready to carry out campaigns, projects, political  education and movement building efforts. Every gift will help CR continue to  chip away at the prison industrial complex and put abolition into  practice.

In tandem with the 2-week online auction, we will also be hosting some  programming featuring artists, our amazing Host Committee cast, and more.  Full program calendar coming in September—stay tuned. We look forward to  Imagining Freedom with you!
