Bradley McCallum—the Coalition’s artist-in-residence—is presenting two concurrent exhibitions as part of the Coalition’s Arts Initiative.

“Portraits of Justice” will debut McCallum’s ongoing art project, “Weights and Measures.”

McCallum has also curated “Post Conflict,” a new and engaging exhibition bringing together works by internationally renowned artists on the frontlines of social justice, including Jenny Holzer, Pieter Hugo, Alfredo Jaar, Lana Mesic, Richard Mosse, Adam Pendleton, Daapo Reo, Ai Wei Wei and Creative Court.

“Weights and Measures: Portraits of Justice” features large-scale paintings from McCallum’s investigation of crimes against humanity and the cases of individuals tried before the ICC and other tribunals in The Hague.

McCallum:

“I am creating large scale painted portraits of powerful men at a point when their impunity has ended. We are drawn into the power of their gaze, their humanity while also being challenged to consider the structures of international justice and the experiences of victims and witnesses… With this work art will provide a catalyst for civic discourse.”

The exhibitions run from 23 November 2014 to 17 January 2015 at Kinz + Tillou Fine Art in Brooklyn, New York. Members of the public are invited to join us at two special events:

Preview Reception
Sunday, 23 November from 4-8pm

Special reception in honor of the 13th session of the Assembly of States Parties to the ICC Rome Statute
Saturday, 13 December from 3-6pm

The Coalition Arts Initiative aims to harness the power of art to enrich understandings of international justice and invigorate the dialogue between human rights, arts communities and the general public. Its goal is to deepen awareness of the work of the ICC and the Coalition’s members around the world.
