LA: EXHIBITION INSIDE|OUTSIDE, From February 8 – March 29, 2024

INSIDE|OUTSIDE is on view at the Goethe-Institut from February 8th – March 29th, 2024

Curated by Homies Unidos, the interdisciplinary exhibition INSIDE|OUTSIDE seeks to raise awareness about the challenges faced by immigrants entangled in the criminal justice system. Many of these individuals, at risk of deportation upon release, leave behind children and families who suffer their absence deeply. In presenting the work and poetry of currently and formerly incarcerated individuals and their families, INSIDE|OUTSIDE gives voice to their stories through their work, revealing their struggles, hopes, and dreams. This powerful showcase and the accompanying programs delve into the dual realities of being confined within prison walls and marginalized on the fringes of society upon release, confronting the harsh aspects of deportation, including the potential for re-incarceration in their home countries.

Serving the Pico-Union, Westlake, and Koreatown communities, Homies Unidos presents trauma-informed and culturally competent art, education, and leadership development activities tied to social justice advocacy programs. 

The exhibition can be viewed during events and at the following times:
