Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Richard Saltoun Gallery celebrates the 30th anniversary of The Art of-Peace Biennale, which took place in Hamburg, Germany, in 1985.
The Last Art-of-Peace Biennale does not restage the earlier exhibition but gathers some of its artists together to represent its spirit and understand its context. Curated around Filliou’s key work 7 Childlike Uses of Warlike Material (1970) the exhibition also includes works by Joseph Beuys, Henning Christiansen, Barry Flanagan, Sol LeWitt, Tony Morgan, Wolf Vostell, and Franz Erhard Walther. Important works include Sol LeWitt’s Proposal for Wall drawing (1985) that invites visitors to draw on the walls of the gallery and was featured in the 1985 exhibition. Consultant Curator: Roddy HUNTER (b.1970, Glasgow, Scotland). Roddy Hunter is an artist, curator and educator. He is the self-appointed curator of The Next Art of-Peace Biennale, 2015-17, resuming the project conceived by Robert Filliou and René Block in 1985.
