For Fates is based on a set of collective imaginings about what a future culture of justice might be like in New York City after the close of the Rikers Island Jail Complex. A range of ideas, texts, and designs was produced in workshops with groups affected by the criminal justice system working with the Red Hook Community Justice Center, and the Institute of Transformative Mentoring. The exhibition features outcomes from these sessions, shown from the perspective of their imagined future.

After Rikers: Justice by Design workshop, May 9th at 5:30PM
