November 5th - 26th, the cutting-edge Peanut Underground Art Projects in NYC will host a preview exhibition of WAR-TOYS: Israel, West Bank, Gaza Strip. The show, curated by Catinca Tabacaru / Tinca Art, will feature a selection of recent work alongside the children’s drawings that served as art direction and inspiration. An installation of ambient sounds from the region will accompany the images and provide an opportunity to further understand the experiences of the children.
I'll be in NYC for the opening event on Tuesday, November 5th from 6-9pm. There will also be an intimate artist's talk and book signing at the gallery on the evening of Saturday, November 9th from 6-9pm. Space is limited, so get there early!
