Who Decides explores the practice and history of capital punishment in the United States. The exhibition covers more than 400 years of US death penalty history through various mediums and perspectives, and is the first project of young non-profit Who Decides. Created by Arkansas death row inmate Kenneth Reams, the organisation's mission is to educate, using art, poetry and performance to spark critical dialogue. The ultimate goal is to build a national death penalty museum. Reams and Isabelle Watson (Ize) have collaborated on this exhibition, and they welcome relevant artistic donations as the project moves forward.
