Incorrigibles: Bearing Witness to the Incarcerated Girls of New York
On view through September 9.
Open Saturdays, 1 – 5 p.m.
Ann Street Gallery • 104 Ann Street, Newburgh
Organized by Alison Cornyn
Ann Street Gallery presents Incorrigibles: Bearing Witness to the Incarcerated Girls of New York, illuminating 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.
With Newburgh being one of the main communities who sent “incorrigible” girls to the institution, it is a special honor for Ann Street Gallery to host this exhibition in the heart of Newburgh’s downtown and share the Incorrigibles project with our community.  

This special exhibition features several interactive elements, including immersive video, ephemera, participant contributions via text and audio, a film screening and a two-week long workshop intensive. 
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.
