Poet Reginald Dwayne Betts and visual artist Titus Kaphar discuss their joint artistic and literary project, Redaction, which confronts the abuses of the criminal justice system.

Inspired by their 2019 show at MoMA PS1, Redaction unites their different mediums to expose the ways the legal system exploits and erases the poor and incarcerated from public consciousness. Betts's signature redacted poetry, which relies on legal documents for its source material, is paired with Kaphar’s etched portraits of incarcerated individuals.

Join them at NYPL as they discuss their exploration of history, incarceration, and race in America.

Venue: New York Public Library - Stephen A Schwarzman Building
