Bob & Roberta Smith uses art for social change. A writer, musician, sculptor and activist, Bob is a former Tate trustee and current member of the Royal Academy. He firmly believes that art is a human right.
Art for Amicus is a series of travelling exhibitions of works from artists on death row in the United States. The focus is to:

  • Highlight the importance of the arts to those in difficult circumstances.
  • Raise awareness of the human rights issues surrounding the use of the death penalty.

As a former Amicus intern said upon her return to the UK, for many inmates "art is a lifeline".

The exhibition includes works from artists on death row across the US, whose access to art materials differs from state to state. Many say that art has helped them in their time in confinement. All portraits by Josh Gabbatiss.

Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Decides (coordinated by Amicus as part of Art for Amicus) was shown at Temple Church (London EC4Y 7BB) from 29th November to 23rd February. 

Young non-profit organisation Who Decides, Inc. presented this exhibition, which covered more than 400 years of US death penalty history and comprises over 50 works of art through various media and perspectives. Who Lives, Who Dies, 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 Reams, who has been on death row in Arkansas since 1993 for a crime committed when he was 18, and Isabelle Watson, activist, Montpellier-based graphic artist and specialist curator of 3D visual arts. Their passion for the project has brought them together personally and artistically.
