- SynopsisBackgroundA multi-media exhibition opening in London brings together the reflections of 26 international artists on Iraq, asking them to imagine an eventual memorial to the ongoing conflict. These memorials address topics such as the invasion and occupation of Iraq, the countrys slide into civil war, the deaths of soldiers and civilians, and the conflicts relation to global jihadism and the War on Terror. The intention is not to find a definitive memorial to a war - a difficult task at any time, and especially in the context of an ongoing conflict. Instead the exhibition explores different views of the Iraq War, and different perspectives on what can or should be memorialised.ChallengeDesign a commemorative publication, invites and signage for the exhibition that were immediate, didnt glorify war and stayed within budget.DeliverablesExhibition DesignHome to the best new art and culture from Britain and around the world the ICA opened a new multi-media exhibition in London.
