Incorrigibles: Bearing Witness
to the Incarcerated Girls of New York

Exhibition Opening
Saturday, May 28, 2022, 5:00 to  7:00 PM
Ann Street Gallery
104 Ann Street, Newburgh, NY 12550


Incorrigibles: Bearing Witness to the Incarcerated Girls of New York illuminates the systemic failure of the juvenile justice system and advocates for youth justice. Incorrigibles gives voice to the untold stories of those sent to the New York Training School for Girls throughout the 20th century. Located in Hudson, New York, the institution was established in 1904 as the only state-run re-educational facility to provide training for “delinquent” girls between the ages of 12 and 18; closing in 1975.

Newburgh was one of the main communities that sent "incorrigible" girls to this institution. 

Premiering in the exhibition is Incorrigibles’ “Expert Voices” a series of video dialogs on incarceration, trauma, and healing practices, along with archival and recent documentation and testimonies. 

Located at Ann Street Gallery, the exhibition opens on May 28th from 5-7 pm and spans the summer until September 9th.

Please feel free to share this event with your contacts. We look forward to seeing you!
