Chicago Lightstalkers, Images Against War exhibit opening thurs 21 Sept

A bunch of you here may know Tina Schelhorn, who runs the Galerie Lichtblick in Cologne, Germany, and until recently was running the photogaphy festival in Mannheim… certainly anyone who’s spent some time at the Arles festival has run into Tina and probably shared a beer with her at the Place du Forum… this is a project she’s been working on over the past few years, and this thursday the exhibiton will open at the Peace Museum in Chicago… I’m off to Chicago tomorrow to give her a hand w/ the installation, and it’d be great if any of you in Chicago would come out for the opening…

a few more details & directions can be found here http://www.peacemuseum.org

Images Against War began as one woman’s reaction to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. In February 2003, Tina Schelhorn, curator, and director of Galerie Lichtblick in Cologne, Germany, sent an e-mail to her friends in the global photographic community, inviting them to give their visual statements against war. By the end of that month, a website was launched with the work of 100 artists, and an exhibition of 250 images hung in her gallery.

In three-and-a-half years, Images Against War has grown to include the visual statements of 660 photographers from over 40 countries. It also has evolved into a public projection and exhibition presented throughout Europe. With each presentation, the exhibition expands, absorbing contributions from regional photographers. Participants range from internationally renowned fine art photographers and Magnum agency photojournalists to students.

Renowned photographers such as James Nachtwey, Wolf Bowig, Stefan Boness, Henk Braam, Cedric Bregnard, Eberhard Bremicker and Bruno Stevens are just a few of the acclaimed artists whose work is included in Images Against War.
Densely displayed, the exhibition is an emphatic, yet nuanced, visual conversation about the causes and effects of conflict, and through photography, reflects reality in a way no other two-dimensional medium can. The images evoke emotions that range from horrific to humorous, sad, hopeful, whimsical, satirical and just about everything in between.

thanks Mike, i’ll send her something this weekend….maybe at some point later in the future (like after my wife’s exhibition next week), we can chat about how i can chat with Tina (i havent met her yet) about getting her project/exhition here: i have “pull” with a gallery here in TO (they have a great space too, lots of walls) and i am certain they’d be willing to do something like this, especially since they are an international gallery..

…mention something to tina, and I’ll PM you in about this in 2 weeks, ok?…now: go get some sleep brother, you cant hang pics without rest: they tend to slant, trust me, I know ;))))…cheer, b
