Join artist Mary Baxter for a series of online conversations, streaming here every other Thursday at 12 p.m. EST.

These lunchtime conversations between Mary Enoch Elizabeth Baxter and her fellow artists in Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration, bring a wide range of voices into dialogue to consider how bonds are forged through and around creative practice in the face of state-imposed separation. How does incarceration impact existing relationships, and how can art construct new forms of connection—a “chosen family”—in turn.
