About the Exhibition:
Of Eden seeks to create space and opportunity for a visual dialogue, tackling one of the most significant aspects of human behavior – conflict and organized aggression, in the context of the “War on Terror”. The very nature of war is traumatic and the premise of this exhibition is that “in war, there are no unwounded soldiers”.
We believe in the power of art, literature and culture to tell the stories of war and to heal the wounds that often go unseen. Of Eden includes the work of veteran, service member and civilian artists that utilize drawing, painting, print work, installation and the written word to share their unique, controversial and often less heard perspectives on military service and war.
All artworks is available for purchase, unless otherwise stated, with proceeds benefiting JPACC Foundation’s Dialogues on the Experience of War Project and the Of Eden Documentary Film Project.
