"Call for Artists: One by One - Globalizing Resistence to the War in Iraq"
2005-06-29 until 2005-12-31
Seven Stories Institute
Jersey City, NJ, USA United States of America

Seven Stories Institute invites artists to participate in one of the largest collaborative artworks ever as part of a campaign to globalize resistance to the war in Iraq. Artists do not need to be a professional artist to be part of this project of resistance. They just need to be opposed to the war and own a pencil. According to the most reliable estimates, over 100,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed as a result of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Seven Stories Institute asks each artist to send one drawn figure to represent one Iraqi victim of the US occupation.

The organizers ask artists also to send a small photo of themself, also no larger than 1 inch in every direction. They will exhibit the drawings and the photos together (unidentified) in conjunction with forums and books about Iraq. Send an email address so they can make contact about the exhibition.

To see examples of other submissions to date go to www.sevenstoriesinstitute.com The project will be exhibited when they reach the 100,000 mark.
