During the summer of 2008, Justseeds completed our first collective portfolio Voices From Outside in association with Critical Resistance‘s ten year anniversary conference in Oakland, California, which took place on September, 2008. Critical Resistance Ten was a gathering of activists, educators, and allies of prisoners who came together to promote organizing efforts to abolish the US prison system.

The portfolio included twenty-one prints from artists and artist collectives active in the US, Canada, and Mexico. Each print critiqued or addressed alternatives to, the prison-industrial complex. Each artist was responsible for their own printing and then mailed them to Justseeds where the portfolio was assembled and then distributed.

Justseeds archived two portfolios and sold 20 to recover costs. Each artist received one copy. The remaining portfolios were then donated to Critical Resistance and 23 other groups organizing against the prison-industrial complex.


We offer exhibition copies of all of our portfolios for loan to schools, galleries, libraries, community spaces, and other institutions and organizations that want to temporarily exhibit our work! Check out this page for more details and to get started!
