Details

Jill Gibbons work will be on display at The Peace Museum from Friday 13th April until Thursday 28th June in a temporary exhibition entitled The Etiquette of the Arms Trade: ten years drawing in arms fairs.

For the past ten years Jill has visited arms fairs in Europe and the Middle East, by masquerading as an arms trader with a suit, paste pearls and a sham business. Once inside, she draws and collects complementary gifts.

The exhibition explores the etiquette of the arms trade through drawings, gifts, and elements of her masquerade.

This is a unique opportunity to meet Jill, hear her speak about her work and ask questions.

Free, drop in event. Everybody welcome.
