An exhibition of artworks by Indigenous artists currently in or recently released from prisons in Victoria.
Presenting over 288 artworks, Confined 11 creates a strong visual metaphor for the over-representation of Aboriginal people in the criminal justice system.
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 Aboriginal 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 Aboriginal offenders and ex-offenders to tell their stories, connect with the community, develop arts networks and reintegrate back into society.
Keep an eye on this page for the latest updates in relation to the role out of Confined 11 with the current COVID-19 pandemic. Rest assured Confined 11 will go ahead in either a physical or virtual form from May 14 – June 7. The Confined 11 exhibition will be available online.
