EPIC Moment features posters and a video screening of A Fly in the Ointment in support of prison justice and reform. The posters were made in January 2016 during the Union Gallery’s PosterACTION, a collaborative workshop with End the Prison Industrial Complex (EPIC) and facilitated by Toronto artist and JustSeeds collective member, Mary Tremonte. With prison abolitionism as an overarching focus of the workshop, the participants were challenged to create works that engage with a broad range of artistic strategies and representational materials. A Fly in the Ointment, a video by Peter Collins, accompanies the posters and aims to bring the exhibition together as it speaks more broadly about the depth of isolation and deprivation that prisoners endure.
