Join us for the launch of Voices from the Row, featuring art and poetry from prisoners on death row in San Quentin in the US.
In the words of one of the prisoners, “This exhibition of work shows that poetry and art has the power to not only exist in a place akin to hell, but to thrive there and transcend it by searching and finding beauty within the bowels of pain, desolation and despair.”
As well as poetry, this unique and thought-provoking exhibition will feature artworks and objects created by death row inmates. Art on display will be available for purchase; 20% of proceeds will be donated to charity and the remainder will be donated to the prisoners to enable them to purchase writing and art materials.
The exhibition runs from 4 June to 7 July. Join us for the launch event on 6 June from 6:30 pm.
