This exhibition in two parts presents a series of drawings the artist Elizabeth Josephson made, while teaching at the Rikers Island correctional facility. Drawing I (February 11 – 28) shows ten large portraits of incarcerated women who collaborated with the artist by writing autobiographical information over their portraits.

Drawing II, the second part of the exhibition (March 4 – 21), is an installation of nine drawings of adolescent inmates. The drawings are projected onto the gallery walls with overhead projectors, rendering the boys life-size and an imposing, yet temporal, presence in the space.
