For nearly twenty years, Rigo 23 has created conceptually complex created murals, paintings, drawings, and performances, conducted interventions and published zines, all of which have advocated for social and political change. His site-specific installation for the New Museum is the newest in a series of works that take as their subject political prisoners such as Leonard Peltier, Geronimo ji-Jaga, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and the Angola 3. Entitled 'The Deeper They Bury Me, The Louder My Voice Becomes,' the work is inspired by the words of Herman Wallace, a member of the Angola 3.
