Welcome to the Confined 11 virtual exhibition featuring artworks by Indigenous artists currently in or recently released from prisons in Victoria, Australia.

Presenting 300 artworks from 286 artists, Confined 11 creates a strong visual metaphor for the over-representation of Indigenous Australians in the criminal justice system. It is the biggest exhibition ever presented by The Torch.

We invite you to view Confined 11 through our Artwork Mosaic or our Virtual Galleries below and also to explore video stories featuring The Torch artists.

176/300 ARTWORKS SOLD

Artworks can be purchased online with 100% of the sale price going directly to the artist. Complimentary stretching is also included with every sale.

The Confined exhibition is the key annual public event of The Torch’s Indigenous Arts in Prisons and Community program which provides art, cultural and arts industry support to Indigenous offenders and ex-offenders in Victoria.

Artworks created through The Torch are part of a rehabilitation process that helps build confidence, social capital, economic stability and pathways to reconnect with the community.

Confined plays an important role in supporting Indigenous offenders and ex-offenders to tell their stories, connect with the community, develop arts networks and reintegrate back into society.

We acknowledge all the artists who have had the trust, courage and strength of purpose to exhibit their work in Confined 11. We also acknowledge the many families who have been such great supporters to their partners, children, parents, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunties, nephews and nieces while they are inside.

The majority of the artists in Confined 11 will not be able to share the exhibition experience. Please share your thoughts, responses or favourite artwork in the Visitor Comments section below. These comments will be passed on to the artists to encourage them in the further development of their arts practice.
