Michigan State University’s Broad Art Museum is hosting an opening reception for its newest exhibit, “DIE/GEST,” an interactive, mixed-media installation that narrates the brutality of the U.S. carceral system. The event, originally scheduled for Friday (Feb. 17), was postponed, and a new date is TBA.
The concept stems from the experiences of co-creator Keith LaMar, who has spent 30 years in solitary confinement on death row and has begun to see prison as a “digestive system designed to consume people and break them down.” He is set to be executed in Ohio on Nov. 16 but continues to fight for a new trial to defend his innocence.
Two of the exhibit’s three creators, LaMar and jazz musician Albert Marquès, will present music and spoken word at the event.
The reception is free, but registration is required. RSVP at the Broad Museum’s website, broadmuseum.msu.edu.
