Spatializing Reproductive Justice is a traveling exhibition and programming series that aims to spread awareness of the inequities of reproductive care in the United States and the agency of design fields to expand access. Learning from past and present reproductive and sexual health justice movements, the project addresses the spatial, legal, and social logistics of reproductive healthcare access in the United States after the repeal of Roe v. Wade. Student research and work by design studios investigates how the intersecting and compounding factors of race, class, and gender impact an individual’s access to care, and offer speculative design proposals for facilities, systems, and networks enabling reproductive care access. Expanding beyond the studios’ work, the exhibition aims to foster a dialogue among designers, healthcare providers, advocates, and students to explore how practitioners of the built environment can respond to and support reproductive justice in the US.

The original studios associated with the exhibition were taught in Fall 2022 and include “A Feminist Ethics of Care: Reproductive Justice in post-Roe America” taught by Lori Brown, FAIA, at Syracuse University, “National Care: Abortion Access, Reproductive Justice on Federal Land” taught by Lindsay Harkema at City College New York, and “Reproductive Justice Network” taught by Bryony Roberts at Columbia University GSAPP.

Curators: Lori Brown, FAIA, Lindsay Harkema, and Bryony Roberts with FLUFFFF Studio

Graphic Designer: FLUFFFF Studio

This exhibition is organized in association with WIP Collaborative and ArchiteXX, and is supported, in part, by a grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.

  • Spatializing Reproductive Justice is made possible in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
