New York-based artist Adam Lister is next to show his support for Black Lives Matter causes with a print edition to benefit the Equal Justice Initiative. EJI is a non-profit organization based in Montgomery, Alabama that provides legal counsel and representation to prisoners who may have been wrongly convicted of crimes. In 2020, the non-profit won the Wbby People’s Voice Award for Charitable Organization/Nonprofit in the “Web” category. The company’s long-term goals are to end mass incarceration, excessive punishment, and racial inequality stateside.

Lister’s signed and numbered POWER print edition features a pixelated interpretation of the iconic raised fist — a longstanding symbol of solidarity and support that is predominantly used as a nod to express unity, defiance, resistance or strength. The print measure 8 by 10 inches and arrives in an edition of 50. All proceeds from the sale of the edition will be donated to the Equal Justice Initiative.

Take a look at the print edition above and purchase one now by visiting Adam Lister’s website. Each print is priced at $100 USD.

Elsewhere in art, Black queer artists explore interconnectivity in “Films for Escapism” online festival.
