Opening on Saturday 6 July, a project by Alice Myers and the Jessiefield Collective, a group of artists imprisoned at HMP Dumfries, which will be installed on the exterior walls of our building throughout the summer.

The Jessiefield Collection is an imaginary museum that grew out of a year-long collaboration between Alice Myers and a group of people in prison at HMP Dumfries.

‘Jessiefield’ is the local name for the fields on which the prison was built in 1883. Beginning with discussions about existing photographs of the prison from the Historic Environment Scotland Archives, the group listed the things they felt were missing. What could or should be remembered about this place?
