New York Times: Best Art Books of 2020



As 2020 comes to an end, art critics at The New York Times have selected their top art books for 2020. As part of this list, Holland Carter selected Nicole Fleetwood’s (Art for Justice Grantee Partner) “Marking Time,” saying:

‘MARKING TIME: ART IN THE AGE OF MASS INCARCERATION’ By Nicole R. Fleetwood (Harvard University Press). The United States has the largest population of captive human beings on the planet, some 2.5 million, in a prison-industrial complex that constitutes a punitive universe walled off the larger world. What takes place behind those walls? Deprivation and cruelty, but also art, as we learn from this absorbing book that serves as a companion piece for a remarkable group show of the same title at MoMA PS1 (through April 4, 2021).”
