WHO DECIDES? Kenneth Reams & Isbelle Watson

OPEN 6pm - 7pm before the talk

Who Decides is a key component of Art for Amicus, a series of exhibitions of artwork by artists awaiting execution across the US. It features the work of Kenneth "Kenny" Reams, who has been on death row in Arkansas since 1993 for a crime committed when he was 18.

Isabelle Watson is a Montpellier based graphic artist, activist and specialist curator of 3D visual arts. Her relationship with Kenny has brought them together artistically through a variety of mediums.

Who Decides mission is to educate, using art, poetry and performance to spark critical dialogue. Reams has created pieces specifically about the practice and history of capital punishment in the US. The aim of this exhibition and of Art for Amicus is to highlight the importance of art to those in difficult circumstances and raise awareness of the human rights issues surrounding the use of the death penalty.
