Robert Priseman’s haunting, precionist paintings pack a powerful punch in their indictment of America’s death penality. Priseman’s painterly restraint is almost “cruel and unusual punishment” to the liberal conscience in its dispassionate cataloging of a ghoulish array of modes of dispatch, historic and current, favored in the execution of Americans. A special event at White Box on Tuesday March 23 features talks by the artist and anti-death penalty advocates Rev. Cathy Harrington and Sir Nigel Rodley.
