Event Series Event Series: Tears of Gold by Hannah Rose Thomas

Exhibit: Tears of Gold by Hannah Rose Thomas

Friday, January 19

View a temporary exhibition of artworks by author, artist, and human rights activist Hannah Rose Thomas featured in the new book Tears of Gold.

Tears of Gold, the exhibition and book of the same name, features portraits of Yazidi, Rohingya, and Nigerian women who have suffered violence in areas of conflict. The book tells the women’s stories alongside their portraits, providing a testimony to their humanity and resilience in the face of adversity.

This exhibit will coincide with A Conversation with Hannah Rose Thomas, with Prince Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein, president and CEO of the International Peace Institute (IPI) and former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights on Thursday, January 25.

 

 

Hannah Rose Thomas’s work has been exhibited at the UK Houses of Parliament, European Parliament, Lambeth Palace, and Westminster Abbey. Three of Thomas’s paintings were chosen by HM King Charles III for an exhibition in Buckingham Palace. Thomas is currently a PhD UNESCO Art Lab for Human Rights and Dialogue scholar at the University of Glasgow.

Tears of Gold will be available for purchase in our Library for the duration of the exhibit. Proceeds will support the survivors and their families.

Admission is included with your free daily registration.
