Opening of the exhibition “Marking Time” at MoMA PS1 (runs until September 7, 2020)

22–25 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, Queens, NY 11101

Exhibition Description: “Marking Time” explores the aesthetic visions and art of people in U.S. prisons alongside a number of works by nonincarcerated artists concerned with state repression, erasure, and imprisonment. The exhibit is organized around the artists’ experimentation with time, space, and matter as structured by the carceral state. From various sites of un/freedom, artists devise strategies to visualize, map, and materialize the impact and scale—the vast reaches—of modern life under carceral regimes. Challenging the inside/outside divide that shapes common understanding of prisons and contemporary art, “Marking Time” considers aesthetic and material links between artists differently situated, some working from solitary confinement, prison work release programs, and others from established art institutions, in collaboration with directly impacted people, and in the public sphere.

Jacket: Virtue Politics: Soulcraft and Statecraft in Renaissance Italy, by James Hankins, from Harvard University Press

Q&A with James Hankins, author of Virtue Politics: Soulcraft and Statecraft in Renaissance Italy

With Virtue Politics, James Hankins has delivered a bold, revisionist account of the political thought of the Italian Renaissance—from Petrarch to Machiavelli—that reveals the all-important role of character in shaping society, both in citizens and in their leaders. We spoke to him about the importance of virtue to leadership in Renaissance Italy—and its relevance to our own time.
