PAPER MAGAZINE: Formerly Incarcerated Artists Headline 'The O.G. Experience' Exhibit - Claire Valentine

Jesse Krimes and Russell Craig speak with Paper Magazine about their experience co-curating a Chelsea art exhibit for previously incarcerated artists. The two artists also speak frankly about the United States’ prison system and the racially biased “war on drugs”. They proactively use their niche platform to highlight the damages of mass incarceration and what society can do to change it.
