Your Wall Can (Not) Divide Us | Grebel Gallery Exhibit
Street art makes an important contribution to understanding local conflict-dynamics and visions of peace. Art created on public walls, signs and structures can reveal narratives about everyday concerns and opinions. It expresses multiple and often contradicting narratives by different artists and communities, which is especially valuable in situations of conflict and censorship.
This interactive exhibition includes photos of street art pieces from a range of conflict-affected societies and an opportunity to leave your own ‘mark’ on the gallery walls. Come explore topics of resistance, political communication, commemoration, and identity expression.
This exhibition has been curated by the international Consortium for Conflict Graffiti (ICCG) with Peace and Conflict Studies students, Zoe Beilby and Christine Faber.
NOTE: The exhibit opening planned for January 25 has been postponed due to weather.
