We invite you to this temporary art exhibition, ‘Voices from Death Row: Art as a form of Expression’, that will bring together works created by people on death row around the world, as well as international artists and exonerees.
Art has long been a tool for individuals to explore, process, and communicate complex emotional and psychological experiences. For those on death row, art can offer a unique form of expression. We invite you to witness the transformative power of art as a tool for reflection and self-exploration, as well as for raising awareness of the inhumanity and injustice of capital punishment regimes the world over. Explore paintings, drawings, poetry, and music, all created in the most challenging of circumstances.
