On March 30th, 2018, INDECLINE, an activist art collective secretly installed an art exhibit into a rented hotel suite at the Trump International Hotel and Tower in New York City. The exhibit “The People’s Prison” depicts Donald Trump in a prison cell surrounded by American flags. “The imprisoned Trump is not so much the focus of, “The People’s Prison.” Rather, the place aspires to present a more positive view of justice. Surrounding a single cell are a jury of what a selection of artists considered to be some of the greatest peers, painted directly onto the flags they labored to make stand for something greater. With this exhibition, the artist collective known as Indecline choose to target a controversial figure with controversial materials. Gallery 30 South strongly supports the right of free speech, and promotes the concept of an art gallery as a Free Speech Zone. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
