Krimes (he/him) uses materials such as prison bedsheets, used clothing, and bars of soap to probe systems of power, with a particular focus on criminal and racial justice. He draws from his own past experiences in prison and works with currently and formerly imprisoned people to emphasize their humanity and the societal impact of mass incarceration. One work he created while incarcerated, Apokaluptein:16389067, is a sprawling installation of newspaper images transferred onto bed sheets using hair gel and a plastic spoon. The collaged sheets offer a visual narrative representing Krimes’ 70 months in prison. His work has been exhibited at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, MoMA PS1, Palais de Tokyo, and The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, among others. He is the co-founder of Right of Return USA, a fellowship supporting formerly incarcerated artists. Krimes has been a Guggenheim Fellow, Ford Foundation Art for Justice Fund Fellow, and Creative Capital Fellow, among others. He earned a BA from Millersville University.
