Fabric of War | 05-Oct-10 to 01-Dec-10

Saison Poetry Library (Tuesdays-Sundays 11am-8pm)
Courtauld Institute of Art (daily 10am-6pm)

This is a new exhibition of work by twenty Palestinian and Israeli women bereaved by conflict. They are all members of the Parents Circle Families Forum and have together made paper out of materials associated with their lost ones. From this fabric of shared experience they have created works that testify silently amid the words and walls that seek to divide them.

This is a collaborative project and more of the exhibition is on view at the Courtauld Institute of Art, Somerset House, which can be reached by crossing the river over Waterloo Bridge.

This exhibition accompanies the Southbank Centre's Poetry International 2010 Festival which is about war and peace, with Palestine and the Middle East as a central focus.
