Afghanistan art exhibition.

Afghanistan
Wolverhampton Art Gallery

18 September – 20 November

Afghanistan has been at the centre of British politics for the last decade. It’s presence in society and it being forefront in the news and media has lead us as a nation to make certain assumption about the place and its people, assumptions that this exhibition contradict.

This exhibition brings forth and uses the talents of a lot of contemporary artists to create visual representations and responses to Afghanistan and also highlights a lot of historical context surrounding the conflict. ‘Afghanistan’ separates itself from the media coverage of this issue and develops their own perspectives on the people, landscape and politics of this war ridden country. Using a combination of talented artists, strong visual images and developed opinions, this exhibition is strong, artistic, emotive and thought provoking.

Artwork from Wolverhampton’s own collection by Simon Norfolk, Paul Seawright and Langlands Bell will feature alongside loans from Cornford & Cross, Jenny Matthews and Broomberg and Chanarin to complete this great exhibition.
