Art exhibition about Iraq, Afghanistan wars in the USA


This video from the USA says about itself:

A review of the U.S. premiere of Fernando Botero’s complete Abu Ghraib series at American University’s Katzen Arts Center in Washington.

From ART FOR A CHANGE blog in the USA:

War & Empire at the Meridian Gallery

Coming this September, 2008, San Francisco’s Meridian Gallery will present War and Empire, a group exhibition that has as its theme the state of democracy in the U.S. – as well as the continuing military occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. …

Famed Columbian artist Fernando Botero will have two paintings from his powerful Abu Ghraib series included in the War & Empire exhibit. On loan from the American University Museum in Washington, D.C., the paintings will most assuredly be a focal point of the exhibit; but I am equally excited over a number of the other artists included in the show – Gee Vaucher, Sandow Birk, and Patrick Oliphant to name but a few.

The exhibition will be on September 4- November 4, 2008.
