Interrupted Life: Incarcerated Mothers in the United States is a multi-installation exhibition that examines women's experiences of incarceration alongside contemporary issues of human rights and social justice. The exhibition powerfully conveys the stark realities of imprisonment, especially its impact on mothers and their children. In the words of the exhibition's curator, Rickie Solinger, "Interrupted Life invites viewers to become educated, active community members, searching for further information and decent solutions to a major growing problem in U.S. society."

Sponsored by the Institute for Research on Women and Gender, the LSA Understanding Race Theme Semester, the Institute for the Humanities, the Center for the Education of Women, Rackham Graduate School, and the Departments of Women's Studies, History of Art, History, English Language and Literature, Afroamerican and African Studies, and American Culture.
