An exhibit about the architecture of incarceration featuring photographs by artist Richard Ross, drawings of solitary confinement cells by people currently being held inside, and rarely seen designs for execution chambers built in the US. The exhibit highlights problematic and little-known spaces within United States prisons and detention centers that house activities deemed to violate human rights.

What do these spaces have to teach us about the state of freedom in America?
