jackie sumell. The Abolitionist’s Field Guide

Special Fundraising Edition with Gold Foil Cover Detail

The Abolitionist's Field Guide is an interactive workbook and reader that teaches abolitionist strategy through the lived experience of plants, their natural relationships, and the stories they tell. “Sometimes those teachings are direct perceptions, sometimes they are metaphors,” sumell writes. “Abolition, like growing a plant, requires daily attention and care.” Taking the Field Guide as a jumping-off point, sumell and Ruiz will discuss the power of imagination in organizing, and the liberatory potential of plants to guide us in resistance against forms of state-mandated control. This event accompanies sumell’s Growing Abolition, a multifaceted project in collaboration with the Lower Eastside Girls Club unfolding around a greenhouse located in PS1’s Courtyard. It also marks the launch of sumell’s tour of the Abolitionist’s Apothecary.

jackie sumell’s work, anchored at the intersection of abolition, art, social practice, permaculture, and contemplative studies, has been exhibited extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe. She has spent the last two decades working directly with incarcerated folx, most notably, her elders Herman Wallace, Albert Woodfox and Robert King—collectively known as the Angola 3. sumell has been the recipient of multiple residencies and fellowships including: Art Matters Fellowship & Joan Mitchell Studio Fellowship, Art for Justice Fellowship, S.O.U.R.C.E. Fellowship, Creative Capital Grant, A Blade of Grass Fellowship, MSU’s Critical Race Studies Fellowship, Robert Rauschenberg Artist-as-Activist Fellowship, Soros Justice Fellowship, Eyebeam Project Fellowship, and a Schloss Solitude Residency Fellowship. sumell’s work invites us to imagine a landscape without prisons. She is based in New Orleans, Louisiana where she continues to work on Herman's House, Solitary Gardens, The Prisoner’s Apothecary+, and several other community generated, advocacy-based projects.
