This is the first year that we have produced a catalogue for our UK exhibition. I’m Still Here has been curated by five prisoners’ families, who selected works from the 2018 Koestler Awards to reflect their experiences of supporting loved ones inside.
Containing all of the artworks in the show as well as this year’s Named Awards, the catalogue gives a further insight into the curators’ selections.
“I hope that the artworks we’ve chosen show that, even in the darkest time, there is always hope, and something to build upon and look forward to.” Janet, curator
What’s it like having a loved one in prison? I’m Still Here is an exhibition of artwork entered into the 2018 Koestler Awards for arts in criminal justice, selected by families supporting someone inside. Each family has selected artworks that speak to them, and that illustrate their experiences. Their exhibition features the diverse range of art, writing and music being created by prisoners, secure patients and detainees, as well as people on community sentences, across the UK.
This catalogue has been produced with the generous support of Sotheby’s, London.
