Volunteers Needed today for Political Arts Project!

Post by dan » Tue Jul 29, 2008 10:44 am

The Nakbah Project - an installation by artist Jane Frere urgently needs volunteers to help with hanging wax figures. You can just turn up to help, they'll be there until 11pm tonight as the exhibition opens tomorrow! They are in the Patriothall Gallery - http://www.patriothallgallery.co.uk/
Recently back from the West Bank, Scottish artist Jane Frere created a haunting and thought-provoking installation 'Return of the Soul: the Nakbah Project'
More information about the exhibition, which opens at the Patriothall Gallery on 30th July, can be found at www.alnakbah.net.

Thanks!

Dan


Some images of the installation process! Anyone in Edinburgh, please come down and lend a hand. We need as many hands as possible to get all the 3000 figures hanging before Weds. Just turn up!!
Thanks
