260 artists from many parts of the world were invited to make a new original print responding to the bombing on the theme of ‘absence and presence’.
Absence & Presence in Exeter
Absence and Presence is a collection of original prints made by artists from around the world in response to the bombing of Al Mutanabbi Street in Baghdad, Iraq on the 5th March 2007.
A selection of these prints were recently exhibited at Exeter Library.
The UK Coordinator for Absence & Presence is Exeter based artist and printmaker Catherine Cartwright.
Below is a beautiful film by Josh Gaunt that documents the marathon poetry reading held within the exhibition.
