For the first time since their removal from Parliament Square in May 2012 the “Peace Plinths” will be re-united and unveiled as the centre piece of Art Below’s “The Peace Project” opening to the public at London’s Gallery Different (off Tottenham Court Road) on 12th October for one week. This exhibition also features the work of celebrated artists including Alison Jackson, Ben Eine, Billy Childish, Kennard Phillipps, Sarah Maple, Schoony and Inkie.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, only one Peace Plinth is on display in the gallery.
Artist collaboration kennardphillipps is issuing a run of 100 signed posters (49 x 49cm) of ‘Photo Op’ for £35 each and donating all the proceeds to The Halabja Community Playground Project. To see works on sale see here.
