This graphic was generated specifically for my epic collaborative 2016 exhibition titled ‘The most gaoled race on earth’ at the Lock Up Gallery, Newcastle (AUS). The piece featured in its own space and ‘spoke’ to a two-metre square floor decal featuring the actual Policeman on the Monopoly board game (‘Go to gaol’).
Designed as a visual reminder that, on the year of exhibition, we boasted ‘the most incarcerated numbers of black people on the planet’. (In W.A. that equated eight times the rate of the apartheid regime of South Africa – per capita). And TODAY… 2018, every child incarcerated is black. It gave me great satisfaction in designing this artwork in response.
