Working with Christina on Bring Down The Walls, a large-scale public art project in New York City which addressed mass incarceration from the perspective of prison abolition and house music, was an honour and one of the highlights of my practice over the last few years. Christina’s involvement brought to the table a wellspring of ideas, inspiring conversations, intellectual rigour, unwavering passion, and profound care for real changes in an unjust system which, ultimately, imprisons us all. She has an unmatched sensitivity in hosting and debating with a wide range of participants from different communities and backgrounds, and a deep-seated commitment to diverse research and scholarship on this pressing, urgent issue. I very much look forward to our continued dialogue and exchange.
