Confined 12

to start — at Glen Eira City Council Gallery

Confined 12 features artworks by Indigenous artists currently in or recently released from prisons in Victoria, Australia.

Presenting over 350 artworks from 320 artists, Confined 12 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.

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.

Works will be available to view and purchase on The Torch website from 8am, and at Glen Eira City Council Gallery from 1pm, on 13th May.

Glen Eira City Council Gallery opening hours: Monday to Saturday, 1pm to 5pm; Sunday, 10am to 5pm
