Cell Signals: Reframing and Resisting Mass Incarceration

August 1, 2020 - September 30, 2020

A photograph by Eddie Herena, made while he was incarcerated at San Quentin Prison. The picture shows a group of incarcerated men, two sitting on a platform holding microphones, the rest standing around them. Everyone is looking to the right, some are wearing all white, others are wearing all blue, or blue and white, the colors perfectly match the clear blue sky above them. There is a chain link fence with barbed wire on its top edge on the left side of the photo.

SF Camerawork presents the online exhibition Cell Signals, curated by Pete Brook and featuring the work of Adam Chin, Jodi Darby, Robert Gumpert, Eddie Herena, Wray Herbert-King, Brandon Tauszik, Pendarvis Harshaw, and the Free Mind Collective. Through its groupings of rehashed archives, call & response, video-visitation hacks, cinemagraphs, homebrew-AI, and prison newspaper coverage, Cell Signals peers upon the networked image-technologies that shape prisons and the U.S. homeland culture.
