The exhibition, which is a benefit for the Iraq Veterans Against the War, will highlight the vivid and powerful narrative of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Inspired by the narratives from Winter Soldier, a historic event (ca. 1971) during which soldiers testified about their personal experiences in the war in Vietnam, we plan to showcase the artistic and performance community's response to the continuing Iraq and Afghanistan Wars.
All proceeds will be donated to IVAW's Winter Soldier Project to be used to collect soldier's firsthand accounts of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan while providing legal and mental health support.
The exhibit, will be broad addressing the conflict through three distinct groups of artists: documentary photographers who have worked in Iraq and Afghanistan and painters, printmakers and sculptors whose work reflects the reality of war; U.S. soldiers, Veteran, Iraqi and Afghan artists; the third group will include one hundred artists chosen from an open call to be hung salon style and sold for $100 each.
