Marking the release of jackie sumell’s The Abolitionist's Field Guide, MoMA PS1 and Artbook host a conversation with sumell at Artbook @ MoMA PS1. The Abolitionist's Field Guide is an interactive workbook and reader that teaches abolitionist strategy through the lived experience of plants, their natural relationships, and the stories they tell. “Sometimes those teachings are direct perceptions, sometimes they are metaphors,” sumell writes. “Abolition, like growing a plant, requires daily attention and care.” This event accompanies sumell’s Growing Abolition, a multifaceted project in collaboration with the Lower Eastside Girls Club unfolding around a greenhouse located in PS1’s Courtyard.
