TUCP Direction is proud to present: "I Wish the Indians Won" The radical practice of dissolving binaries A lecture by Jackie Sumell In 2001 Herman Wallace, while in solitary confinement at the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, received a letter from artist Jackie Sumell. After two years of writing, Jackie asked Herman a very simple question, “what kind of house does a man who's been in solitary confinement for 30 years dream of?” Herman has spent the last decade answering that question. Together, he and Jackie have built the idea of Herman's House out of an unquenchable desire to share the experience of freedom. In 2003 Herman began designing his house, and entering the world outside of solitary confinement. More information on the Herman's House project can be found at http://hermanshouse.org/ Jackie Sumell's decade long collaboration with Herman is the subject of the full-length documentary featured on PBS called Herman’s House. Her work humanizes dialogue around the overuse of cruel and unusual punishment in American prisons and addresses implications for the American psyche. Sumell's work at the intersection of art, social justice and yoga continues to engage new audiences by employing the power of imagination. Her work has been included in numerous international exhibitions and has received widespread critical acclaim including the 2013 Soros Justice fellowship.
